Parish Councils are currently still being consulted on planning applications
during the COVID 19 Emergency. Members of Portreath Parish Council have now
moved to meeting virtually so previous protocols for commenting on planning
applications have now been superseded. Moving forward in the case of the planning
consultations, unless otherwise advised the following process will be adopted:
notification from Cornwall Council of a planning application the Clerk will advertise
on this website links to all planning applications received from the planning
authority. Details of the planning applications will also be shared on Social
Media and on the agenda for the next full Parish Council meeting. Details of
planning applications are also shared with councillors. Members of the public
will be invited to join the relevant virtual meeting of the Council if they
wish to speak regarding a planning application and encouraged to comment on the
Cornwall Council Planning Portal with their views on the applications.
At their virtual
meetings members will consider the planning application as consultees. They
will consider the published details of the application, views of the public
available on the planning portal, views of the public aired at their virtual
meeting, comments of the planning officer (where available) prior to their full
debate. At the meeting a resolution will be made on how to respond to the
consultation. This will be confirmed by a vote from councillors at the meeting
before being submitted on the planning portal by the Clerk.
Parish Council is consulted on planning applications within the parish and in
parishes close to its boundaries for comment as one of many consultees. Porteath
Parish Council is not the decision-making authority in the planning process.
