KPC are notified of all planning applications in Kelsall parish, and can submit comments to Cheshire West planning officers. The decision to approve or not is made by the Cheshire West & Chester planning department..
KPC's comments are based on facts, planning policies, residents' views, and "material considerations" – these don't include all reasons why people may object to an application. The CWAC public access page has a useful list of those factors.
To decide what comments (if any) to make, KPC Councillors take into account current planning policies of the National Planning Framework, the CWAC Local Plan, and also the Kelsall & Willington Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP)
Any resident can comment on planning applications in the civil parish. The applications are available to view & comment on, on the CWAC website here.
You can also report any issues with construction (noise, nuisance, work out of permitted hours, etc).
Kelsall has a Neighbourhood Development Plan, approved in 2017.
