Under this section you will find details of any 'live' planning applications which have been submitted to Somerset West and Taunton Council and are within our Parish.
The Parish Council is a "statutory consultee" in the planning process and as such we have a right to comment and respond to any applications on behalf of the community.
When we are notified of an application, it will be posted here and one of our councillors is delegated (by rota) to undertake a site visit - depending on site circumstances this may or may not be accompanied. The delegated councillor will then report back to the Parish Council at one of our next monthly meetings (or at an extraordinary meeting if necessary) - we will then debate the issues and then agree and issue a formal response to the Planning Officer.
Where practicable, the Parish Council has decided that we will try to actively support beneficial planning and development within the parish - provided that any proposal will not have a detrimental impact on other residents or the environment.
Planning applications will be listed on this page by their reference numbers. To find out more about the application just click the reference number which will take you to the SW&T planning application web page.
At this time Churchstanton Parish Council does not have a neighbourhood plan.

We would be particularly pleased to hear from any parishioners that would like to become involved in developing a Neighbourhood Plan. Please contact our clerk if this is of interest to you!
