The Parish Council has a Planning Committee made up of a number of the Parish Council members.

They usually meet once every month. Meetings are held in the Council Office at The Clanfield Centre. The agendas are posted on the Parish Council’s website.

The Planning Committee does not have any power to Permit or Refuse an application. Its task is more of an advisory one. Using their local knowledge of the area, they review each application and submit their comments to East Hampshire’s Planning Officers. We may object to certain parts of an application for instance, based on its location or style. However, our objection is just advice for the Planning Officers, the final decision always lies with them.

Members of the public are welcome to attend the planning meetings. If doing so, it’s helpful if you can let the office know in advance. After the planning committee discusses each application, the public are allowed a short amount of time to add any comments for or against the application. The members then vote on their decision, which is submitted to East Hants District Council’s Planning Department.


Upcoming Planning Agenda

Current applications that the committee is considering can be found on the Planning Agenda issued before each meeting. A full list of current Agendas can be found here.
