Planning Applications are decided by Wealden District Council, Hellingly Parish Council is invited to comment on those involving the parish, but does not have any executive power. The monthly meetings of the Planning and Environment Committee, are held on the 2nd Wednesday and 4th Wednesday of each month at the Community Hub, are open to members of the public, who are always asked whether they wish to address the Committee. Meetings may be subject to cancellation if there is no business to discuss.
The Planning and Environment Committee Agendas are issued a week prior to the meeting and list all applications to be discussed at the meeting. However, it is sometimes necessary to discuss applications that are received post the publication of the Agenda in order that the Council may submit comments to Wealden District Council by their deadline. If you are interested in a particular application you should check with the Clerks, Tracy Dean or Jenny Hoodless, whether it is to be discussed at the meeting. Contact details are: email@example.com or 01323 449415.
The detail of planning applications is available on Wealden District Council’s website or from their offices in Hailsham. Planning applications are considered by Wealden District Council, normally in public. Anyone wishing to speak for or against an application should contact the Committee by telephoning 01323 443322.
