Planning Applications

The Parish Council has the right to express its views on planning applications affecting its area to the planning authority. Babergh District Council invites comments on all applications and sends all the planning documentation to the Parish Clerk. Applications are then discussed at the next Parish Council meeting.

In cases where the next meeting falls outside the 21 day response period and an extension cannot be agreed, a special meeting will be called to discuss the application. Notice of this meeting will be displayed on the notice boards and the website.

All planning applications and documentation can be found on the Babergh website. Members of the public are also able to make comments direct to BDC through their website and in writing.
