The Parish council considers planning applications as a statutory consultee, consultations on the Local District Plan, Worcestershire County Council Local Structure Plan, Landscape Survey etc and can only make advisory comments not decisions.
Due to the timescale involved for the responses to the Local Planning Authority (Malvern Hills District Council) the parish council has delegated the responsibility for comment to the LPA to the planning committee. All minutes are therefore signed by the chairman of the committee but are reported back to the next full meeting of the parish council as a Report for acceptance.
Parishioners and the press are always welcome to attend meetings of the Planning Committee and there is always an opportunity given for parishioners to speak on any application detailed on the agenda.
