Process for continuing Parish Council business during the Coronavirus Crisis
As the Parish Council are currently unable to hold public meetings, Planning Committee business will be conducted as follows. We have put in place processes which we hope, although the residents are unable to attend meetings, still gives them the opportunity to participate and have input on the items being discussed.
Every Monday – Details of any planning applications received for consultee comment (since the previous Monday) will be posted on the Parish Council's website on the ‘Current Planning Applications’ page www.feockpc.com/current-planning-applications and on the Facebook page.
Details of the applications received will also be sent to the Planning Committee.
A deadline for comments to be made by the public/neighbours will be stated on the website (generally this will be 5pm on the Friday of the same week).
Any comments should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org clearly stating which planning application they refer too.
The following Monday morning, the Assistant Parish Clerk (Debbie) will collate and email any comments received from the public to the Planning Committee members, who will then have a further 5 days to consider and discuss the applications via email.
The following Monday, the Assistant Clerk will circulate to the Planning Committee, taking into account their comments and the Feock NDP, the proposed consultee comment from the Parish Council, for agreement and request a proposer/seconder and majority support to be notified to her within 2 days.
The consultee comment will then be submitted to the online planning register with the additional comment of “Due to the restrictions placed on the council as a result of the pandemic Coronavirus, this response represents the opinion of members of Feock Parish Council identified through a consultation process and will be ratified at the next appropriate meeting of the council. “
The Planning Committee considers and provides a formal response on planning applications in the Parish of Feock, including works to trees and holds regular Committee meetings which the public are welcome to attend.
Planning applications can be viewed online using the links provided on the 'Current Planning Applications' page and paper copies of applications and plans are available for viewing in the Parish Council's office in Market Street, Devoran. Links to all planning applications received in the Parish are also published on our Facebook page.
Please contact Debbie Searle, Assistant Parish Clerk, should you wish Councillors to be made aware of any comments that you have on current planning applications. Contact details:
