Finding Out about Planning Applications

You can look at applications in detail on the LCC Planning Department website - details about accessing the site are given below. You can attend our Planning Committee meetings and have the opportunity to make a verbal or written representation - see below for more details

Details of Planning Applications

Immediate neighbours are generally informed by LCC in writing whenever a planning application is received, and appropriate notices are displayed near the site in question.  Additionally, details are posted in the local press and are also displayed on the LCC planning website where you can also find a historical record of planning applications over the last couple of years. This page also includes instructions that you can download for finding particular planning applications. It is a pdf file called Using Public Access.

Planning Law and the workings of the Planning Department can be somewhat opaque if you are not trained as a planner or a solicitor! If you are puzzled about how to find out about planning applications in your area, please contact our Clerk. If you want to comment about a planning application to us, then please either contact our Clerk or attend our next Planning Meeting (dates)

If you feel particularly strongly about a particular proposal you may make a verbal presentation to the Parish Council (maximum duration three minutes) at the next monthly meeting, or you may attend the Parish Council Planning Committee. You also have the right to address the LCC Planning Committee (maximum duration three minutes, prior notification to LCC essential).

You should remember that the planning process necessarily conforms to a strictly defined schedule, and it is essential that they comply with the deadlines that this imposes.
