Representation Summary:

Fees should not be charged for pre- application advice. This is a part of the planning process and actually eases the job of the planners. Charging is just a money making excercise unless the advice is binding.

Consultation draft Statement of Community Involvement

Representation ID: 169

Received: 21/11/2014

Respondent: THURNBY AND BUSHBY Parish Council

Representation Summary:

Paragraph 9.3 'Community Involvement with the Developer' and 9.4 'Pre-application Discussions with the Council' should be exchanged, as presumably discussions with HDC would normally be the first stage.

Ward Councillors should be included at all stages, in particular with regard to large scale developments. They and their link with Parish Councils and community groups are best placed to understand the impact on the local community.
