Understanding the Planning Applications
Potton Town Council considers all Potton planning applications. That means when your neighbour submits a planning application or any other application in the town is submitted, the Town Council will consider the application before passing on a recommendation to the Planning Authority at Central Bedfordshire Council.
Central Bedfordshire Council (CBC), as the Planning Authority, strives to determine all planning applications within an eight-week cycle. The cycle commences when a planning application is submitted to CBC. As part of the cycle Potton Town Council is consulted on all applications within Potton. CBC also consult with the immediate neighbours of the applicant, with the consultation period lasting for a four week period.
The Town Council’s Planning Committee meet twice a month to consider all Potton applications that fall within the remit of the committee.
Residents are also encouraged to advise the Town Council of any concerns that they might have regarding planning proposals that they feel affect them and suggest that copies of letters sent to the planning department at Central Bedfordshire Council are also forwarded to Potton Town Council. These can then be considered by the relevant Councillors when viewing the planning application.
As with all Potton Town Council meetings, members of the public are welcome to attend.
The determination of planning applications is primarily conducted via a system of delegation to Council Officers, which means that the Local Planning Authority Officers determine all non-contentious applications, which is approximately 90% of the planning applications received by the Planning Authority. The Planning (Development Management Committee) of CBC determines the remaining 10% of applications in the Potton area.
Central Bedfordshire Councillors, however have the power to “call in” any application they consider needs further investigation, which is a process that ensures the application is determined by the Planning Committee and not determined by a Planning Officer.
