One of the council’s responsibilities is its role as a ‘statutory consultee’ in the planning process. St Erme Parish Council takes great care to consider each planning application on its own merits and looks at the nature of the proposal and its potential effects on the surrounding area.

Members consider any planning applications received at their full council meetings held each month. Occasionally extraordinary meetings may be held due to consultation deadlines. The agenda of these meetings will be available 3 clear days before the meeting and displayed in the councils 5 notice boards and on the council’s website.
