PLANNING

Westcott Parish Council is consulted on some planning applications by Buckinghamshire Council (BC). They are considered by Council within the deadline set by BC. The Parish Council has no authority over the final decision and can only make a comment to either support, remain neutral or object to the application.

WPC can only comment on “Material Considerations” such as:-

  • Overlooking/loss of privacy
  • Loss of light or overshadowing
  • Parking
  • Highway safety
  • Traffic
  • Noise
  • Effect on listed building and conservation area
  • Layout and density of building
  • Design, appearance and materials
  • Government policy
  • Disabled persons’ access
  • Proposals in the Development Plan
  • Previous planning decisions (including appeal decisions)
  • Nature conservation

If you have any objections we strongly advise that you make your comments known to Buckinghamshire Council by either writing to them or by commenting on the application directly via the Planning Portal.
