Barton Parish Council Planning Process
Barton Parish Council (BPC) are consulted by Greater Cambridge Planning on all planning applications that impact our village (on behalf of South Cambridgeshire District Council). Any views expressed by BPC  will be taken into account by SCDC planning before a decision is made. Our Councillors look at all Barton applications, some of which may need a site visit. BPC may also call a Public Meeting to discuss any significant issues or causes for concern.

Planning applications are examined against a set criteria, and BPC can only comment on what are known as material considerations (see examples below table). These comments have to be discussed and approved at public meetings such as the regular BPC meetings. The final decision is made by the Planning Authority not the Parish Council, in our case Greater Cambridge Planning on behlaf of South Cambridgeshire District Council.

If anyone wants to see copies of applications, please contact our Clerk.
