The Parish Council has no executive powers in deciding planning applications – this is the duty of North Lincolnshire Council, which is the Planning Authority.  However, it is mandatory for the Planning Authority to consult the Parish Council on all applications in its area.  The Parish Council can then comment as it sees fit on any application; however, the Planning Authority can disregard these comments if it considers them to be inappropriate.

North Lincolnshire Council  offers a range of on-line planning services, including a searchable planning application database, which can be accessed via the North Lincolnshire Council planning webpage.
