What is the Council’s role in planning applications?
The Parish Council does not decide planning applications but it has the right to be consulted about every application relating to land within the parish. The Planning Committee discusses every one and agrees what observation to make before the decision is made by New Forest National Park Authority. The Committee is always willing to hear comments about applications before it decides what observation to make.
Full details of the planning applications are available on the websites of the relevant authority, where comments can also be made directly.
