Planning Applications for the May meeting and June meeting can be found here and leave your comments

Winterton on Sea Parish Council is not a planning authority. It is, however, asked for its comments  by Great Yarmouth Borough Council for applications in respect of the Parish of Winterton on Sea.

The Clerk receives the applications, and once received these can be inspected upon request or at the beginning of the parish council meeting where they are to be discussed.  If the deadline for response is before the next Parish Council meeting then an extension is sought so that the full Parish Council can view the application, and Parishioners have the opportunity to speak to the Council at the meeting before comments are returned to Great Yarmouth Borough Council.

All plans are notified on the front page of this website, and on the meeting Agenda.

If no extension can be obtained then parish councillors will be consulted to provide a response on behalf of the Parish Council, which will be notified at the following parish council meeting.

Objections raised have to relate to a material planning consideration.

Members of the public who are affected by planning applications should respond directly to either Great Yarmouth Borough Council.
