Planning Information

Let’s be honest, the only time most of us have any dealings with planning is when the neighbours want to build and extension, or a new residential development is planned in the village. Planning is a very sensitive issue – especially when we feel that our lives will be negatively affected. It is worth mentioning that not all planning is ‘bad’ planning.

Below we highlight links to various documents which may help you to deal with planning matters. If you are confused or concerned, it maybe that one or more of these documents will be able to help. Don’t forget that you can always call the planning case officer and ask questions for clarification of points. Should you wish to support or object to a planning application, make sure that you quote policy numbers from the Local Plan to support your stance, and be focused on your issues.

How to respond to planning applications: an 8 step guide produced by Campaign to Protect Rural England and National Association of Local Councils.

National Planning Policy Framework sets out the Governments planning policies and how they are expected to be applied. It provides the framework within which local people and their accountable councils can produce their own local and neighbourhood plans.

Planning Portal: A website that answers questions such as "Do you need permission?", "What is permitted development?" By clicking on "Interactive house" can select your property type and this takes you to a quick guide to permitted development. On the right hand side of the page are links to common projects undertaken.
