Publicising planning applications

Consultations with Town and Parish Councils

We will consult the relevant Town or Parish Council on all applications for:

  • planning permission
  • listed building consent
  • advertisement consent
  • Certificates of Lawfulness for an existing use or development
  • works to protected trees or trees within conservation areas

The Town or Parish Council will have 21 days to make any comments and those comments will be taken into account before a decision is made.

Representations received after the 21-day period do not have to be taken into account, but if a decision has not yet been made such comments will be taken into account wherever possible.
