Our Planning Panel meet once every 3 weeks generally, to review local planning applications. We advise both the District Council and the Town Council, together with Ward Councillors and applicants where necessary.
Members have a wide range of expertise in architecture, history, geology & conservation. Chair is Dr Pat Smith, other members include Richard Swann RIBA, John Peverley, Rebecca Harrison, Phil Gryce, Katy Duke, Jean Lowe & Debbie Little.
Two members (Richard & John) were members of Mendip District Councils’ Conservation Advisory Panel.
Frome time to time we recommend buildings for Listed status.
