Planning Applications Panel

A gentle start to the New Year; the Planning Applications Panel met to discuss local planning applications which included a new bungalow. The panel check that there is space for the bungalow, parking and access are also considerations as is any complaints from neighbours and will the building be in keeping with the surrounding properties. The panel will also note the decisions from District Council on previous applications that have already been commented on by the town council. Sadly there are occasions where our recommendations are not agreed upon, as the final decisions will always be made by the higher authority; we are here to provide recommendations after looking at the information and plans provided and ensuring that any buildings or modifications are to the benefit of the town and neighbourhood overall.
