The Parish Council has a Planning Committee, which sits on a Tuesday evening, every four weeks preceding the full Parish Council meeting.
All of the agendas are published on the website and on the noticeboards around the parish 4 days before every meeting. Due to Sunday being an none workig day the agendas need to be published by the Thursday before the meeting is held on a Tuesday.
Any item that is to be discussed on the agenda will be published on the agenda - the committee does not allow any other business to take place.
The meetings are held in public, mostly in the Village Hall. 15 minutes are allocated for members of the public to speak at the meeting about any items that are on the agenda. Please note that the meeting is not a public meeting but a meeting of the Planning Committee that is held in public.
All minutes are uploaded to the website. Archived minutes (which are minutes and agendas that are from the previous years) are located in the archive folder at the top of the task bar.

In most cases planning applications are the responsibility of the District Council and in our case Babergh is the District Council.
They inform us of any applications received by them from within the parish and they are obliged to take into consideration any comments made by the Parish Council. On occasions when the Parish Council asks extensions are given to Planning Applications.
