Planning Committee considers matters relating to the planning process at national, county, district and parish level affecting the parish, except for those that are within the remit of a Parish Neighbourhood Development Plan Committee.
Members of Planning Committee take responsibility as lead councillor for planning applications in specific wards or other areas of the Parish Council area. Planning applications for consideration by the Parish Council are referred in the first instance to the relevant area Councillor.
As a statutory consultee of planning applications within West Dean Parish, the Council is required to respond to consultations within 21 days. In order to meet this requirement, Planning Committee meets twice a month to consider applications.
Chair: Cllr Peter Dunford
Clerk: Dave Kent
All Councillors are ex officio members of all Parish Council Committees
