This working group has committee status as it has devolved responsibility to make comments on planning applications without the approval of the full council. In reality, all councillors do get the opportunity to comment on most applications. As a statutory consultee, we receive notification of every planning application in the Parish.

Planning Committee meetings usually take place twice a month on a Wednesday at 2pm at the Trinity Centre.  Residents with and interest in attending are welcome on application to our Executive Officer.  Please see the home page and Parish Council Facebook Page for details of upcoming meetings.

Terms of Reference for the Planning committee can be found here.

The Planning Committee is mindful of ensuring that planning application are not at odds with our published Neighbourhood Development Plan or Village Design Statement.
