Horsham District Council is the planning authority for the area. West Chiltington Parish Council is a consultee in relation to all planning applications within the parish boundaries, and makes recommendations to the District Council. The Parish Council’s comments are factored into district-level decisions, but it is one opinion among many and may be over-ridden.
The parish’s Planning Committee deals with planning matters. The committee follows a formal protocol in considering applications and is expected to focus its comments on ‘material considerations’ as defined by relevant policy frameworks (national, district and the Parish’s own draft Neighbourhood Plan and Design Statement).
