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. To view the planning applications on the forthcoming agenda click here.

The Parish Council submits its comments, based on planning grounds, to Tewkesbury Borough Council with whom the decision rests regarding granting or refusal of planning permission. The public may also submit comments to Tewkesbury Borough Council, during the consultation period, either on-line or by email or post. Further information on Tewkesbury Borough Council's planning policy and services can be viewed here. The Parish Council's response regarding an application is published in the associated documents list on Tewkesbury Borough Council's website. The Parish Council's comments on large-scale and significant planning matters are also noted below in the planning comments section.
