Parish Councils do not have power to grant or refuse planning permission. The Local Government Act 1972, section 101 does however, require local authorities to consult parish councils on certain matters affecting their parish and a parish council is a statutory consultee on the development plan, local plans and structure plans.

Planning authorities must inform local parish councils of applications affecting its parish and consider its views when deciding on planning applications. Planning authorities usually allow fourteen to twenty one days for a response.

Planning Authority

The Planning Authority for our Parish is North Lincolnshire Council. All planning applications can be found using the following link: Opens in a new window

The Parish Council does not have executive powers to accept or reject applications, but our views are considered when the application is determined by the relevant authority. We also contribute views on Local Area and Regional Strategies on subjects such as housing, transport, environment and employment.

The Parish Council have received a letter from Merlin Renewables. Merlin Renewables hopes this will help answer some of the concerns being raised by residents. They have asked us to make this letter available to Redbourne Residents as it is not possible for them at the moment to host a Public meeting. Redbourne Parish Council have written to North Lincolnshire Council to request the consultation period be extended to allow for a better understanding on the impact to the village.
