Application details will be removed from this local list approximately three months after a decision has been made.


The Parish Council regularly review local planning applications which could have an effect on our village; these could also include those in neighbouring parishes.

If a member of the public wishes to comment on a particular application, the process is described here. You should normally do this within 21 days of the registration date of an application. It would be useful if you could send a copy of your correspondence to the Parish Clerk.

Should sufficient objections be received including those from the Parish Council then the application will be taken to the District Council Planning Committee, and not decided by the case officer alone.

Each week Mid Suffolk District Council give details on their website of new planning applications and decisions they've made during the course of the week. You can find detailed copies of planning applications, including full plans, environmental surveys, design and access statements etc, along with comments, conditions and considerations.

You can search (link here) by village, address or application number for the application you’re interested in. It also has a feature for making comments and allows you to see the outcome of past applications. However it is not always easy to get a simple summary of local issues; also there are circumstances where the information has changed but may not be obvious to casual users. To allow you to keep up to date with current issues the reference number and a short summary of the planning application is provided above.

The Parish planning committee also deals with other issues which affect the Parish, and the agenda often includes issues such as street cleaning, litter bins, parking in the village, street lighting and highway matters. Members of the public who have comments on these items can contact a member of the Parish Council.

The decisions and council responses to any local applications are to be found in the minutes of parish meetings.

The Parish Council hopes that this new facility will raise awareness of applications and help to involve the wider community in determining the future direction of the village.
