The parish council is sent information from SLDC planning dept. about all planning applications in the parish. The councillors consider each application and comments are submitted to the planning dept. In the case of larger more complex applications a working group of councillors may meet and /or have a site visit to discuss and agree comments to be submitted to SLDC. If a working group is to be formed for an application the intention will be posted on the website. The councillors also take into account any views given to them by any parishioner, which can be done through this website (see feedback/contact us link on Clerk/Councillors page) or by contacting a councillor directly. The parish council do not make any decisions about the application. This is the responsibility of the planning committee at SLDC.
