Planning & Conservation

Parish Council is notified by B&NES of any planning applications prior to B&NES‘s decision. We are also notified of outcomes and appeals. We employ a local planning expert to evaluate the impact of any application for change within the village. We submit comments to the B&NES Planning Officer on all applications, particularly those we consider to be detrimental to the character of the village and its environment.

Conservation matters such as tree works and environmental issues are also of interest to the council.
