Planning Applications - Background

This page will provide links to planning applications that are submitted and are to be reviewed by the Parish Council.

The Parish Council has no powers to approve or reject an application, but it does provide an advisory and consultative role within the process, and this is an essential stage in any application.

Border of Three Counties

It can be tricky sometimes knowing which county we belong to in terms of services as we are on the border of 3 counties - Northamptonshire, Lincolnshire and Cambridgeshire so most of us use services from all three at different times.

Note our postcode is PE8 - which makes our postal address Peterborough and yet Peterborough is in Cambridgeshire.
