Planning applications are considered by the Full Council at its meetings which are normally on the 4th Tuesday evening of every month.

The role of Sutton Parish Council is to respond to planning applications sent to us by the Local Planning Authorities, East Cambridgeshire District Council or Cambridgeshire County Council. The Parish Council does not have a power to determine planning applications, their role is to make recommendations to the planning authorities based on material planning considerations.

If you would like to view plans that are submitted to the Parish Council, please use the East Cambs District Council Planning Portal by clicking here for applications to be decided by the district council or the Cambridgeshire County Council Planning Portal by click here for applications to be decided by the county council.

All responses to applications should be addressed to the Local Planning Authority, however it is useful if a copy could be sent to the parish council, in order that the council can consider your points whilst considering their recommendation.

An easy-to-use website about planning has been developed by Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE).  It will:

  • show you how to respond to planning applications
  • guide you through the planning maze
  • explain planning jargon
  • help you get involved in planning decisions that shape where you live
