Hever Parish Council acts as a consultee for all planning applications in the parish.  Sevenoaks District Council (SDC) is the planning authority and will decide whether or not an application is granted, receiving comments made by the Parish Council and other consultees, such as Kent Highway Services,  The Environment Agency and any member of the public.  SDC have no obligation to agree with or take these comments into account.

The final decision is made by the Planning Authority and not  the Parish Council.

  • Parish councils are statutory consultees and have no powers to approve or reject planning applications, they can only comment (or not) on applications.
  • Parish Councils are not obliged to respond to any application it is consulted on.

Hever Parish Council will only comment on what are known as “material considerations” *

If you would like to submit a comment to Sevenoaks District Council, either for or against an application, please send a copy to the Clerk of the Parish Council (clerk@hever.org) and we will take your comments into consideration whilst discussing the application.  If you would like to know when an application will be considered by the Parish Council, to share further information or give us your views, please contact the Clerk.

To view applications on the Sevenoaks District Council website, see http://pa.sevenoaks.gov.uk/online-applications, then enter the application number without the SE prefix, for example Ref. No: 09/00009/FUL, in the search box.
