As the first tier of local government, all parish councils have the right to be consulted on planning applications. Herefordshire Council as our unitary authority advises us when an application has been submitted.

Parish Council’s can only make representations on planning applications, it is Herefordshire Council that decide the application based on national and local policies.  When making representations, the Parish Council also has to adhere to these policies.
