Planning Chairman : Cllr. Terry Brooker

The Planning Committee meet regularly throughout the year to deal with frequent planning applications (29 applications to date this year).

The Parish Council is classed as a statutory consultee on every planning application directly affecting the Parish. Sevenoaks District Council sets a legal deadline of 21 days for all consultees to submit their responses.

Southdene circa 1955We are also frequently invited, (as a matter of courtesy), to comment on planning applications which are the responsibility of neighbouring parishes, where there will also be an impact on our area. A typical example of this is any planning application which relates to Polhill Garden Centre or to the redevelopment of Fox’s Garage, both of which actually lie within Shoreham Parish.

If you wish to contact the Parish Council with your views about a particular planning application, email the Clerk:

On October 1st 2008 new planning and building
control regulations came into force, which affect
the size of permitted extensions to properties.
If you are considering extending your property,
please check out the new regulations, by following the link below.
