Saltford Parish Council does not send letters notifying neighbours of planning applications to be discussed by the Parish Council. The onus is on a member of the public to contact the Parish Council prior to a meeting where the item will be discussed. Meeting dates are on the SPC website.
SPC publishes its notice of a meeting and an agenda a few days before a meeting. The agenda will detail any planning application to be discussed and resolved. SPC usually also shares this information via its social media pages, and residents are encouraged to follow our Facebook and Twitter accounts for updates on planning consultations being considered.
