In relation to Planning Applications, whilst the Town Council has the right to be notified of any Planning Application affecting its area and to make comments which the Planning Authority must take into account, it is the District Council (as the Planning Authority) which makes decisions on Planning Applications. Therefore, any member of the public whom wishes to make a comment or representation in relation to any planning proposal should do so, foremost, to the District Council.
