Planning Summit

Mon, 06 Nov 2017 16:48 by Bethany Hibbs

Members and Non-Members...

On November the 28th 2017, Cornwall Council is holding a 'Planning Summit'. It does then seem an appropriate time for us to ask you a few questions about the Pre-App process/protocol. More »

If responses could be sent over to us by the 20th of November it would be very much appreciated. These should be sent to 'enquiries@cornwallalc.org.uk'. We can then provide a write up to take along to the summit which will be of great use. If any respondents would be happy to share their views/present on the day please also let us know.

Questions are as follows:

Good Practice- does your council have any examples of 'Good Practice', if so, what are they and how have they helped your council ?

Challenges- has your council faced any challenges in dealing with planning applications (at the pre-app stage), if so, what are they and how did you/ might you overcome them?

Any other comments- Do you have any other comments or insights on the planning process/ pre-app protocol you wish to share?

Finally- Would you be willing to attend the Planning Summit to present your councils experiences?

Best wishes and thanks in advance,

Bethany » Less

We are hoping to revolve this as soon as is possible, but in the meantime, if you are unable to get through on the phone, please contact us via email. More »
