Councillors are urging people to join their objections to relaxing planning rules.
They fear extended development rights for homes and businesses could lead to ‘monstrosities’ being built in the borough.
A national consultation on the Government’s plans ends on Christmas Eve.
Councillor Gary Cowan said: “It is a bad policy which has not been thought through properly and residents need to be aware of its implications.”
Borough councillors unanimously backed a motion submitted by council leader Cllr David Lee expressing serious concerns over the Government proposals, at a full council meeting on Thursday, November 22.
