Durleigh Parish Council is a statutory consultee on all Planning Applications submitted to the local planning authorities. Somerset Council has responsibility for local planning, highway issues, school and hospital developments.

The Parish Council is invited to comment on all applications for development within the parish. However the outcome is decided by the responsible planning authority.

Applications received are added to the agenda for each bi-monthly Parish Council meeting. The applicant and members of the public will then have an opportunity to attend and comment but not to lobby members. (Extra-ordinary meetings may be arranged, or an extension requested if the deadline for return of comments cannot be met.)

Digital copies of Planning Applications, information on the process and the means to comment with other guidance can be accessed on Somerset Council Planning Portal.
