A new free online self-service planning tool has been launched by Tewkesbury Borough Council.
The planning tool enables anyone in Tewkesbury Borough to check whether they are likely to need planning permission for any project they are thinking of developing.
The service is part of a national scheme by the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC) to improve resident and landowners’ experience of submitting planning applications.
The new service makes high-level checks against national permitted development rights legislation and uses geographic information system (GIS) data to see if the project may fall under ‘permitted development’. The service also warns if other types of consent, such as prior approval, tree consent or listed building consent may additionally be required.
The service asks applicants questions specific to their project, meaning that users don’t need to be planning experts to start researching the changes they can make to their homes.
Executive Director of Place, Chris Ashman said: ‘‘We’re pleased to offer this user-friendly, online self-service planning tool. Residents can quickly and easily check if their idea for a planning project is likely to be allowed under national permitted development rights or whether it may require planning permission. Anything from a simple project like adding a driveway or solar panels to a roof can be checked.
‘’We know planning has the reputation of being complicated and people may be unsurprised to learn that over a third of applications are stopped at validation. We hope that this tool will help applicants and free up valuable resources within our Planning team – enabling them to dedicate more time to examining projects which require planning permission.’’
This service has been launched as part of the Council’s successful bid for funding from DLUHC’s Planning Software Improvement Fund.
The project is supported by Open Digital Planning, a community of council officers, and digital and technical experts who are working together to design and build the next generation of local government planning services.
Matt Wood-Hill, Head of Digital Planning Software at DLUHC said: ‘’This new scheme aims to make planning simpler for everyone by helping applicants submit the right thing the first time. We’re delighted Tewkesbury Borough Council has progressed this so quickly for their residents. We are continuing to work alongside Tewkesbury and hope to have more services available to the public in the near future.’’
The self-service planning tool is free to use and can be accessed now on the Tewkesbury Borough Council website

A Brief Guide to Planning

The local planning authority Tewkesbury Borough Council (TBC) notifies Highnam Parish Council as a statutory consultee via the Parish Clerk of all applications for consideration and/or comments within the parish.  The Parish Council is consulted for its knowledge but does not determine planning applications.

Decisions are made and based upon planning policies set in the Local Plan, Planning Policy Statements (PPS), Government Guidance (NPPF) and Neighborhood Development Plans (NDP). Planning Officers use delegated powers and form part of a planning committee made up of TBC Councilors.

What do I do if I have an interest or want to object to a Planning Application?

First you must view the plans and supporting documentation.

If you wish to object you must write to, or email TBC and send a copy to the Parish Clerk so that we are aware of your views

If you wish to find details of an application, or comment on one you need to visit the Tewkesbury Borough Council website.

See below some reasons for objecting

  • Highways – access/roads unsuitable for the development (where access is a relevant consideration).
  • Loss of light – dependent on the size/siting of the development to a neighbouring property’s principal windows (can they be directly looked into?)
  • Design/size/scale/materials of proposal in relation to the existing property, neighbouring properties and general location.
  • Effect on/loss of protected trees or listed buildings
  • Setting listed buildings on Conservation Area.
  • Noise, fumes, smell or loss of privacy.
  • Risk of flooding as a result of the proposal.
  • Loss of a valuable facility if dealt with in the local plan.

What are not normally planning considerations Loss of view/aspect.

  • Personal matters relating to the specific applicant.
  • Changes to land/property values.
  • Personal taste with respect to the proposal

The examples listed above are definitive but not comprehensive and are a guide to assist in the preparation of letters or statements of support or opposition.

You may also make comment to the Parish Council at the appropriate meeting, but the Council is not obliged to pass on any such comments to the planning authority.

The Parish Clerk will be able to tell you when a particular application is due to come before the Parish Council.
