Your Comments On The Planning Portal
We understand that Buckinghamshire Council plans to stop displaying public comments on planning applications, on their portal.
They will still receive and consider your comments, but others including the Parish Council, will not see them.
At this moment we do not know when this change will occur, but it is imminent.
In order that the PC is aware of your views when deciding upon its response to planning applications, it would be very useful if you would copy your comments to the Parish Clerk by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will not disclose your information to other parties.
Parish Council Role
The Parish Council is a Consultee only.
We are notified of all new applications.
We ensure they are considered at a Parish Council meeting.
Residents can attend to tell us how they would like us to respond.
In the absence of public opinion, the Parish Council responds as they see fit.
The job of planning enforcement is to ensure that any development takes place according to permission granted. If you think permission has been breached, planning enforcement can investigate. It is not possible for Planning Enforcement to investigate where planning permission has not yet been granted, under these circumstances you should contact the Planning Officer in charge of the application. Please visit the Planning Enforcement Page.
Send Your Comments to the Planners
If you have strong views about a planning application, you should tell the Parish Council, but you may also record your response by accessing the Planning System
What To Say
Planning applications are decided on planning law, not opinion. As such the Planners will only take into account certain types of comment. This document is issued by Buckinghamshire Council Planners for guidance. The Parish Council comments will comply with this guidance.
Call In Process
The Parish Council is once again able to request that a Planning Application is “Called In” to the relevant planning committee, rather than being decided on delegated powers.
Within 28 days of being notified of the application, the Parish Council must make the Planning Officer aware;
i. That they wish to “Call In” the Planning Application to the relevant Planning Committee.
ii. What the material planning reasons for a “Call In” are
iii. That a representative of the Parish Council will attend and speak at
committee if the request for “Call In” is agreed.
The Service Director of Planning and Environment (or their delegated officer), in consultation with the Chairman (or, in his absence, the Vice-Chairman) of the relevant planning committee, will determine whether or not the matter “called-in” by the Parish Council, should be considered by Planning Committee, or whether the exercise of delegated powers is appropriate.
“Call In” is appropriate for planning applications for full or outline consent, as well as applications for reserved matters. Other types of applications, consents, notifications will be determined under delegated powers
