Bury Parish Council welcomes the opportunity for pre-application planning discussions with applicants and/or developers and their agents before a planning application is submitted. These discussions may be beneficial to both applicants and the residents of Bury. The Parish Council is a statutory consultee for all planning applications in Bury. Its role is to comment on applications and forward recommendations to the local planning authorities, Chichester District Council (ADC) and The South Downs National Park Authority (SDNPA). BPC has chosen to adopt a protocol for pre-application planning consultations and engagement so that developers; applicants; the Council and residents are aware of the status of such discussions.
