Planning Applications


Local planning applications are received from Suffolk Coastal District Council (SCDC) from time to time. Three clear days notice is given of the Planning Committee meeting in Parham Village Hall to discuss such applications (via village noticeboards and website). Planning Applications are examined in detail and the Parish Council's comments, including a recommendation to support or object, are referred back to the District Council (Planning Authority). Public meetings are called to allow parishioners to express their opinions on planning applications.

Only Councillors without a prejudicial interest in the application can discuss and vote at a Planning Meeting unless Councillors have been granted a dispensation from the Standards Board.

Notices will be posted on the two village notice boards giving brief details of Planning Applications being considered by the Parish Council.

Parish Council responses can be found in meeting minutes, or in the 'News' section.
