The Local Planning Authority for Bitton Parish Council is South Gloucestershire Council.
Bitton Parish Council is automatically notified and consulted on any applications made within the parish boundary, including applications for Certificates of Lawfulness. These applications are discussed at our Planning Committee meetings when decisions are taken about whether to object, or not, to the proposals that are being made. Councillors will assess each application on its own merit and have to be mindful of a variety of published planning policy documents as well as local knowledge in these matters. A list of the applications to be discussed at any given meeting is published as an itemised list on the meeting agenda. Residents may make their views known to the Parish Council with regard to these applications under the terms of public participation.
The Parish Council is a consultee and does not make the final decision on planning applications, this is the remit of the planning department at South Gloucestershire Council.
Search planning applications that have been submitted to South Gloucestershire Council. This will give you information on any planning application currently under consideration as well as applications on which a decision has already been made.
