Planning applications

The Parish Council plays an active part in all local planning issues. The Parish Council is a consultee and any comments must relate to planning issues, rules and policies. Planning permission is usually granted if the application complies with policies of central and local government. Typically, reasons for objection would be the site’s planning history, the size of the development, the development envelope of the settlement, infrastructure and accessibility including rights of way.

It is probably the area of the Council’s role that is best known to the community and which can be of the most importance.

To view the planning applications that the Parish Council will comment on please see the agendas of the future council meetings.

To view the decisions of the Parish Council please see the minutes section of the council meetings. Please be aware that the minutes will not be posted online until they have been agreed by the committee at the following meeting.

Area 2 Planning Decision

Woodford Old Lane Update – At the Area 2 Planning Meeting in August, TMBC had recommended that permanent permission was granted for 2 caravans at Woodford Old Lane. The Parish Council objected to this along with several neighbours to the site.

Several residents (20-30) attended the meeting to support the objection. Area 2 members decided to refuse permanent consent and gave an informative that they would give consent for further temporary consent for 7 years to first generation dependants. The final decision will go to full council; either permanent permission, temporary permission or refusal will be granted. TMBC are concerned that if permanent permission is not agreed, that the applicants could appeal. If the appeal is successful then TMBC would get cost awarded against them. It was suggested that we get residents engaged in time for the meeting which will be in October.
