Our point of view on planning

The parish council is an important consultee for the District Planning Authority, which is part of Cotswold District Council (CDC). This means that we are notified of all new planning applications in the parish and asked to provide any comments by a strict deadline. The final decision is then taken by CDC as the local planning authority.

You can view all current planning applications under consideration by CDC in detail here, including consultee comments.

We also include details of planning applications and the council’s comments in  our monthly meeting minutes. If you have any questions regarding planning, please contact CDC on or telephone 01285 623000.

Church View

We understand that planning a burial at a time of bereavement can be especially challenging. As a council, we’re here to help make the process
run as smoothly as possible.
