Sedgehill and Semley Parish Council Planning Process
Our Parish Council (SSPC) is consulted by Wiltshire Council Planning Department on all planning applications that impact our villages. Any views expressed by SSPC will be taken into account by WC planning before a decision is made. Our Councillors look at all parish applications, some of which may need a site visit. SSPC may also call a Public Meeting to discuss any significant issues or causes for concern.
Planning applications are examined against a set criteria, and SSPC can only comment on what are known as material considerations. These comments have to be discussed and approved at public meetings such as the regular SSPC meetings.
The final decision is made by the Planning Authority not the Parish Council, in our case Wiltshire Council Planning Department.
Applications can be viewed on the Planning section of Wiltshire Council website.
