Planning Applications

Information about Planning Applications

South Cambridgeshire District Council (SCDC) is the Planning Authority and determines planning applications.

The Parish Council is a planning “consultee”. This means the District Council asks our opinion of all planning applications and are discussed by our planning committee. It is important to remember that the Parish Council is not the decision maker for planning applications, that responsibility falls upon the District Council.

It is SCDC’s responsibility to inform neighbours of planning applications. Documents and plans are available to view from the Greater Cambridge Shared Planning website at This includes the ability to search by reference number, keyword, address or postcode.
