Planning in Bishop's Cleeve

Bishop's Cleeve Parish Council is consulted on planning applications within, or which significantly affect, the parish of Bishop's Cleeve. Incoming applications are reviewed by the Planning, Highways and Environment Committee which meets every second and fourth Thursday of the month at 7.30p.m. and members of the public are welcome to attend. A schedule of meetings can be seen here.

The Parish Council submits its comments, based on planning grounds, to Tewkesbury Borough Council with whom the decision rests regarding refusal or granting of planning permission. The public may also submit comments on-line about applications, during the consultation period, or submit views by email or post.  Further information on Tewkesbury Borough Council's planning policy and services can be viewed here. All Parish Council consultee comments can be viewed on Tewkesbury Borough Council's website.
