Pett Parish Council is a consultee on all planning applications for work located within the parish. Councillors will take time to consider each application from the view point of the parish as a whole and will decide whether to make any comments at its monthly ordinary public meetings held on the 3rd Tuesday of the month at the village hall (or see the calendar for dates). When considering large, detailed or more complicated applications the council may hold an additional meeting to consider the application alone. These will be well advertised.

Members of the public are welcome to make comments on applications during the public session or open forum section of the council meeting. Should you not be able to attend the meeting, then please contact one of the councillors to brief them of any comments.

Applicants are also welcome to attend council meetings and advise the council of any points they wish to highlight during the public session. Members of the council may take the opportunity to seek answers from the applicant.

The council is required to hold a vote to decide whether to support, object or make no comment on an application.

Information on any planning application can be found on Rother District Council Website (Click here ). You will need to know the application reference number or the road name.

Residents can be alerted to applications in the parish by signing up to the Rother Alerts (Sign up here ). My Alerts email contains information specific to your property and surrounding area such as a reminder of your next bin collection or any planning applications nearby. It also contains useful news and events in the Rother area.

Information on trees, hedges, how to make a complaint, whether you need planning permission, the planning portal and much more can be obtained from your local planning authority. ( Planning Information )
