Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council is the Local Planning Authority for all planning applications for the Parish. However, as statutory consultees, Sutton Cheney Parish Council plays an important role in supporting or objecting to applications that affect the Parish.
All planning applications are presented at Council meetings where the Council can resolve to formally respond (or not respond) to specific applications. If you wish for the Parish Council to formally comment on an application you are urged to attend a Parish Council meeting and speak during the Public Participation session to air your views to Councillors. Alternatively, please contact your local Councillor for advice.
Whilst the Local Planning Authority may not agree with the Parish Council’s recommendations, it must consider them alongside all other comments before it decides to grant or refuse permission for the development. Please note that the Parish Council formal comments hold no more weight than a Parishioner when commenting on planning applications.
