The Society keeps a watching brief on all planning applications within the National Park. For those that are considered significant the Society will provide a statement outlining its position. On major planning issues the Society will be represented at the planning meeting where the issue is to be discussed and will, if necessary, speak.
The Society regularly attends the BBNPA Planning and Rights of Way Committee (PAROW). Information on BBNPA Planning and Development Control can be found here, where you can also find the Society’s responses to planning applications as well as all other associated correspondence.
