The Parish Council's role in planning
Planning applications made within the parish or which immediately border onto the parish are considered at meetings of the full Parish Council, usually held on the first Tuesday of the month.
The parish council is a statutory consultee in planning matters. The parish council cannot veto a planning application but it can request that applications are decided by the borough council's Planning Committee rather than being dealt with by a Planning Officer under delegated powers.
Links to planning applications considered by the parish council from 18th October 2015 onwards are given below.
