Managing development impact
Development affects everyone. The impacts of even the most minor planning decisions can have very real consequences, both positive and negative, for individual lives. The planning system seeks to balance different, and usually competing needs and demands against environmental, social and economic constraints and long-term sustainability.

The Parish Council also encourages informal pre-application discussions with prospective developers as this approach saves time and costs, and leads to better outcomes
