The Parish Council does not decide on local planning matters but it uses the views of local people and the local knowledge of councilors regarding planning applications.
The Parish Council can comment on plans, taking into account the views expressed by the general public at Parish Council meetings. The Parish Council makes recommendations to West Northamptonshire Council Planning Committee based on comments received and discussions at Parish Council meetings.
Comments may help to get plans changed and developments improved.
The Parish Council can also produce a Neighbourhood Plan to help local planning.
