How the Planning System Works
Applicant applies to East Riding Of Yorkshire Council (ERYC) for planning permission if needed.
ERYC refers the application to the Parish Council and to some residents who maybe directly affected (such as residing next door) for comments.
The Parish Council does not take the final decision but can either approve or recommend refusal, taking into account views of residents who can attend Parish Council meetings to state their views. In many cases the Parish Council may well sympathise with your views but the final decision does not always follow their recommendations.
The application then goes back to ERYC (Western Planning Committee) for a decision, taking into account the Parish Council's and Resident's views who may be allowed to attend committee meetings.
An appeal against a ERYC decision can be made to the Planning Inspectorate at Bristol who will give a final decision. This can only be challenged in the High Court.
