How many objections should a planning application have?

Planning permission can be denied if your build is guilty of these offenses: Your build overshadows a neighbour, causing loss of light. Your build overlooks other homes, causing loss of privacy. Your builds appearance is out of character with the existing property.

Is loss of light planning objections?
