The parish council’s planning committee meets monthly to consider planning applications. The council is a consultee on planning applications but does not make the final decision. This is the responsibility of Lewes District Council (LDC) or the South Downs National Park Authority (SDNPA). Most of the parish is with the national park but the northern end beyond Folders Lane East remains in Lewes district.
If you have a view on a planning application, you can contact the clerk or comment directly to LDC or the SDNPA.
Our planning recommendations are guided by the neighbourhood development plan.
The chair of the planning committee is Councillor Don McBeth.
