The Parish Council may also make comments on applications outside its boundaries that are thought to particularly affect the Parish.
Current applications, including plans, may be viewed on the South Gloucestershire web site. On occasion there can be some confusion as to the parish council’s role concerning applications for planning permission. Firstly residents should be aware that all planning decisions are made by South Gloucestershire Council and not the parish council. Accordingly if you wish to comment on an application to those who decide it you must do so directly to South Gloucestershire Council within the specified time.
The parish council is a statutory consultee in the planning process and is sent all applications within the parish upon which it can comment. If you wish to bring your own views on a planning application to the attention of the parish council, prior to it considering the application at its meeting, these need to be sent to the Clerk to the council as soon as possible. The parish council has to keep to the same response times to South Gloucestershire Council as everyone else.
Residents should remember that they can also raise their comments on a particular application directly with their South Gloucestershire Councillor, John O’Neill – again within those all important time limits. Time is very much the key to have your voice properly heard.
The Parish Council receives copies of planning applications within its area, and is given 14 days to make comments to the Planning Authority, South Gloucestershire Council.
