Planning Applications – Community Engagement

Whitstone Parish Council is informed of all planning applications within the Parish and invited to comment on them. Any views expressed by the Parish Council will be taken into account before a decision is made, providing the points made are a relevant ‘material consideration’. The final decision is made by the Planning Authority (Cornwall Council), not the Parish Council.

The Parish Council feel it is vitally important that Cornwall Council are aware of the views of our residents and would encourage you to comment on planning applications either by following the link to the online planning register or writing or emailing to the Parish Clerk. Please remember that only comments which are about material considerations will be effective in influencing the Planning Authority decision.

You can find all current planning applications in the parish by following this link and typing ‘Whitstone’ into the search box. You can add your comment by clicking the relevant application then the comments tab and following on screen instructions.

Defibrillator in the Parish

The Parish Council have purchased a defibrillator which is installed in the front porch of the village hall. This equipment is available at all times for use by any member of the public in an emergency. To remove the machine simply break the tag by opening the door. (very little force is needed to break the special tag)

Below is a short introduction into the benefits and how to use this life saving machine.

More information can be found at St John Ambulance or read the document by the Resuscitation Council UK.
