Wye Planning Applications

(Scroll down for current and recent planning applications)

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. As these issues are so important the Parish Council puts a great deal of thought, time and effort into responding to planning applications.

'The way we approach development affects everyone. The impacts of our decisions as a society have very real consequences for people's lives. Poor planning of communities, for example, reduces the quality of life for the people who live in them.' (Sustainable Development Commission, independent adviser on sustainable development).

The Parish Council is a statutory consultee on all applications for planning permission, listed building consent and tree works applications within the parish, and may consulted on large applications beyond the parish boundary as these may affect Wye residents. Although the Parish Council considers and comments on all planning applications that affect the parish, the power to approve or refuse an application always rests with Ashford Borough Council as the local planning authority.
