Planning applications

At each monthly parish council meeting we discuss local planning applications sent to us by Solihull MBC. Remember, we only make a recommendation to Solihull MBC Planning Committee and it is this committee that makes the final decision. Often we refer the applications to a neighbourhood notification. We are also consulted for other reasons e.g. existing site use, noise, smell and fumes, environmental features, Green Belt, Conservation Area, Impact on neighbour viability, public rights of way, sustainability. You can have your say by visiting the planning application page on www.solihull.gov.uk/planning

You can find comprehensive information on all current individual planning applications by visiting Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council (SMBC) website. Here you can view the weekly planning list of new applications, including all documentation relating to individual applications, decision notices etc. There is a facility to make your comments directly to the SMBC via their website. If you do not have access to a computer at home, the computers in the library can be used.
