The Role of the Parish Council in Planning

Tolleshunt Major Parish Council has requested that it is consulted on planning applications. It means that Maldon District Council (the Local Planning Authority) must consult the Parish Council on planning applications for development in the Parish Council area. However. the Parish Council does not have power to refuse or approve an application. It can only provide comments back to the District Council.
