The Parish Council responds to planning applications in each Council meeting. The Parish Council has a duty to respond to Horsham District Council Planning officers within 21 days of receipt of the application. The Clerk prepares a report of all application decisions made by Horsham District Council to be reviewed by the Parish Council each meeting.
If applications are received for larger housing developments, then the consultation process is often longer, with developers presenting housing plans to the Parish Council in advance of the planning application being submitted to Horsham District Council.
