Serving the people of Moulton

Moulton Parish Council is consulted on all applications falling within the village boundary.

The Planning Committee inspects all sites and scrutinises the plans for every application. Its comments are then passed to the Planning Authority for their deliberations.

What do I do if I have an interest or want to object to a Planning Application?

First you must view the plans and supporting documentation.

If you wish to object you must write to, or email the Planning Authority and send a copy to the Parish office so that we are aware of your views. Unless you have valid planning reasons, your letter will be wasted.

Listed below are reasons for objecting to a particular application:

  • Highways – access/roads unsuitable for the development (where access is a relevant consideration.
  • Loss of light – dependent on the size/siting of the development to a neighbouring property's principal windows (can they be directly looked into?).
  • Design/size/scale/materials of proposal in relation to the existing property, neighbouring properties and general location.
  • Effect on/loss of protected trees or listed buildings
  • Setting listed buildings on Conservation Area.
  • Noise, fumes, smell or loss of privacy.
  • Risk of flooding as a result of the proposal.
  • Loss of a valuable facility if dealt with in the local plan.

Things which are not normally planning considerations include:

  • Loss of view/aspect.
  • Personal matters relating to the specific applicant.
  • Changes to land/property values.
  • Personal taste with respect to the proposal.

See the main Planning page for latest applications.
