The broad aim of the Parish Council in terms of planning is to keep Stanton-on-the-Wolds a pleasant place to live avoiding inappropriate development.  The Parish Council is asked by Rushcliffe Borough Council to comment on every planning application within the Parish boundary.  Applications can be for new build, extensions, revised access and footpath diversions.  It is important to stress that the Parish Council is only advisory to Rushcliffe Borough Council the final decision on each application rests with the relevant planning authority within the Borough Council.

When the Parish Councilís comments on an application are submitted to the Borough Council they take note of the input while also applying planning rules that are in force at the time.

When considering planning applications, the Parish Council takes into account the following:

  • that the proposed development, in terms of size, location and design is in keeping with the character of existing properties and the surrounding area
  • that there is no over-development of the plot
  • that the proposed development does not have an overshadowing or overbearing effect on neighbouring properties
  • that there will be no detrimental impact on the privacy of neighbouring properties
  • that the proposed development does not create a terracing effect
  • that appropriate access and parking have been allowed for in the plans

A Planning Committee has been appointed by the Parish Council to consider applications. Notification of the date, time and place of meetings will be displayed on the Village Notice Boards. Members of the public are welcome to attend. Minutes of the Stanton on the Wolds Planning Committee are listed below. The Borough Councillor for the Wolds ward, Councillor Fiona Mason, is also consulted for her opinion on each planning application for Stanton on the Wolds. She can be contacted on 937 4024 or by Email on
