The Planning Authority which makes decisions on planning applications for our Parish is Milton Keynes Council ("MKC") and specifically the Development Control Committee or Panel. Minor decisions, where there is no objection by a Ward Councillor or Parish Council, can be made by the Planning Officer.
All applications are published on the MKC website and there is a set period for consultation where statutory consultees, Ward Councillors, Parish Councils and members of the public can comment on applications in support or objection. The Parish Council is considered to be a statutory consultee and all applications are on the published agenda for its meetings. If a resident wishes to give an opinion on a planning application, they may speak at the Open Forum at the beginning of Parish Council meetings.
Any resident/other interested party may object to or support a planning application via the MKC Planning Public Access site.
