TMBC is the local planning authority responsible for determining planning applications. Shipbourne Parish Council is a statutory consultee and we have a strict 21-day deadline for submitting our response to an application which must be based on a material planning consideration. Our planning responses are decided at our monthly parish meeting, however, if a deadline falls between meetings, we have a policy whereby comments are circulated between Councillors and agreed via email. For larger applications, we will either call an extraordinary meeting or request an extension. For all current applications and information on planning, please visit
