The Planning Consultative Panel of Rottingdean Parish Council
The Planning Comsultative Group of Rottingdean Parish Council (RPC) receives a copy of all planning applications made for sites in the Parish, and may make comments on behalf of the Parish. These are recorded in the minutes of the monthly RPC meetings. If any resident would like to express their views, either in writing or in person, on a specific planning application then please contact the Parish Clerk.
Brighton & Hove City Council remain the 'Local Planning Authority' with reponsibility for deciding applications.
Should an application attract opposition from neighbouring dwellings, pressure can be brought to bear on the City’s planners if five or more separate letters are sent to BHCC. This ensures that an application is decided by elected Ward Councillors for B&H rather than a decision made by planning officers in the Planning Department. If residents comments are also copied to the Parish Council Planning Consultative Group, through the Parish Clerk, these will be considered as part of any submission RPC may make on behalf of the Village.
