Local Planning Applications

Selby District Council Planning Authority notifies the Parish Clerk of all new applications/appeals. The Parish Council is asked to respond with any observations they may have on the application.

Applications will be discussed at a public meeting of the full Parish Council. Before they are discussed at a meeting, an agenda will be displayed on the Parish Council notice board and detailed on the website. The application reference details will be included on the agenda to allow Parish Councillors or members of the public to review the details on the Selby District Council public access planning portal.  You can also click the reference link below to view the details relating to a specific application.

Any observations expressed by the Parish Council will be taken into account by the Planning Authority before a decision is made, providing the points made are relevant to the determination of a planning application.

See the Planning page for more details regarding the Parish Councils involvement in Planning applications. 

Note: The final decision is made by the Selby District Council Planning Authority, not the Parish Council.
