Planning Applications are discussed by the Planning Committee which meets on Wednesdays every 3 weeks.

Whilst the Parish Council considers and comments on all applications affecting the Parish, the Local Planning Authority is Somerset Council from April 2023, who determine most decisions on applications. Members of the public are encouraged to take an active role, by both joining planning meetings and commenting on the Planning Portal.
