How the Planning System Works
Applicant applies to
East Riding Of Yorkshire Council (ERYC) for planning permission if
ERYC refers the application
to the Parish Council and to some residents who maybe directly affected
(such as residing next door) for comments.
The Parish Council does not
take the final decision but can either approve or recommend refusal,
taking into account views of residents who can attend Parish Council
meetings to state their views. In many cases the Parish Council may
well sympathise with your views but the final decision does not always
follow their recommendations.
The application then goes back
to ERYC (Western Planning Committee) for a decision, taking into account
the Parish Council's and Resident's views who may be allowed to attend
An appeal against a refusal
of permission by ERYC can be made to the
at Bristol who will give a final decision. This
can only be challenged in the High Court.

Clerk if you require any other information or assistance.
