Information about the planning process can be found at the Newcastle-under-Lyme Borough Council Planning Website.
The Parish Council produced a Design Statement and this was published in September 2002.
The Parish Council has no specific powers to influence a planning application.
The Council has formally requested that it be consulted about all Planning Applications submitted in the Whitmore Parish so that it may take a view.
The Council does make comment on these applications but the weight of its comments is no greater than those made by residents.
