as far as i am aware councillors have the right to make representations on a file as in “i support this application” or otherwise but do not have any further entitlement to make any observations without paying a â‚¬20 fee – they don’t have the right to appeal an application after making a representation. The planner will most likely give little regard to the content of a representation and make his or her recommendation based on the planning issues.
Planners do get frustrated with the lobbying of local representatives and the power that they can wield but the planner involved is unlikely to make a recommendation out of spite for the councillor
