Planning Applications

On notification by South Norfolk Council, planning applications are considered by the Planning meeting, and some are discussed at the next available Full Council meeting. Details of the meetings are shown in the Council Calendar. Our response counts only as a singular when Planning officers look at the number of objections or expressions of support. When permitted development requires prior notification to the local planning authority, the developer must post the Site Notices

Whilst the Town Council considers and comments on all applications affecting Costessey, the deciding authority is South Norfolk Council who consider our comments. It's also important that individual comments are made to South Norfolk Council by the published deadline.
