The Parish Council meet every two months during which responses to Planning Applications are considered. The Parish Council does not have executive powers to accept or reject applications, but our views are considered when the application is determined by the relevant authority. We also contribute views on Local Area and Regional Strategies on subjects such as housing, transport, environment and employment.
Copies of applications are received by the Chairman from the Planning Office.
The Chairman calls the Planning Working Group together to discuss the planning applications received. The comments agreed by the Working Group are then given to the Clerk to pass to the Planning Office. At the next parish council meeting a schedule of the planning comments submitted between parish Council meetings is presented to the Parish Council for ratification.
Current planning application can be viewed on the Cumberland Council website.
