ROLE OF THE PARISH COUNCIL IN PLANNING DECISIONS
Whilst Landford Parish Council plays an active part in all local planning issues, it is only a statutory consultee in the planning process. As such, it will only discuss applications that fall within its boundary once they're notified by New Forest National Park Authority and Wiltshire Council.
Landford Parish Council has local and specific knowledge which will be taken into account by the Planning Authority before a decision is made. The Parish Council’s role is to consider all applications objectively against material planning considerations expressed in the Planning Policies and Core Strategies for the relevant Planning Authority area. The final decision is made by the Planning Authority, not the Parish Council.
