The Parish Council is a statutory consultee on planning applications. It reviews and makes a recommendation on every local application made to The New Forest National Park Authority (NFNPA). The NFNPA decides whether applications are granted or refused taking into account the Parish Council's view.
The Committee usually meets on the fourth Tuesday of the month at 7pm at Brockenhurst Village Hall but this is subject to change so please contact the Parish Clerk to check the date of the meeting and/or when a particular application is being discussed.
The Committee is chaired by Cllr. John Korbey and meetings are open to the public: a short period is set aside prior to the discussion of each application under consideration to enable members of the public to make presentments.
Even if you do not wish to make a personal presentation to the Council if you are forwarding written comments to the NFNPA it is helpful to send them to the Parish Council as well, preferably by email to the Parish Clerk. This will greatly assist the Council in reaching its recommendation to the NFNPA. Please contact the Clerk if you require further information.
Planning applications are available to view on the NFNPA website and at Lymington Town Hall during public opening hours.
