About our committee

This committee meets once a fortnight to consider and respond to local and national planning initiatives from a variety of sources. These include consultations with national government on national infrastructure projects such as major road projects, Tewkesbury Borough Council on local planning applications such as specific building upgrades and neighbouring authorities such as Wychavon District Council, where issues might have a potential impact in Tewkesbury. Our local insight and understanding of our parishioners can influence the final outcome of planning aspirations.

The planning committee meets regularly in the Old Court Room on the ground floor of the Town Hall at or around 7.30pm on a Wednesday evening. Do check the Council website for further details, including the agenda for the next of the fortnightly meetings which always include opportunities for public participation, as we actively welcome public engagement with the council.
