 Planning Applications

At the Parish Council meetings consideration is given to current planning applications received by Wakefield Council. This includes applications to fell trees. It is the Parish Council's policy to object to all tree felling applications unless the tree is dead, dying or in a dangerous condition. They do this to preserve the trees in the village.
