Information about how we moderate our website.
We check content submitted by you for our website before it is published.
We welcome debate and opinion about the services we offer (even if they criticise us). Depending on the area of the website, moderation may be used to ensure that our publication rules have not been broken, and/or to add a reply to the information before it is published/used.
Planning and licensing application comments, events, social media feeds and epetitions.
We reserve the right to edit, or not publish, submissions featuring any of the following:
We do not edit spellings and grammar where it is a review / comment in a user's own words, but we will correct submissions to the events database.
Comments will be published within five working days of submission, unless it is an epetition.
If the moderator chooses not to publish a comment for a reason listed above, or any other reason, they will reply to the commenter explaining the reason and where possible give them the opportunity to make appropriate changes.
Comments will be checked with legal services where it is deemed appropriate.
When submitting comments to a public forum you must provide your personal information, including a valid email address. You can however, choose to remain anonymous on the website. Please be aware of our privacy information before you send information to our website.
Our moderation policy should be read in conjunction with the relevant disclaimers which appear prior to submission of your comments.
Our social media feeds are also monitored. Posts containing offensive, libellous or incorrect information will be removed.
The moderator's decision to publish is final. We also reserve the right to remove comments post-publication. If you wish to complain about a published comment, or one you have submitted which hasn't been published, please contact us.
