Planning Applications

Planning drawings

Chelveston-cum-Caldecott Parish Council is statutory consulted on all planning applications in the parish, but is not the Local Planning Authority (LPA). The LPA is normally East Northamptonshire Council, save for Minerals, Waste, Schools and Fire Services applications, for which the LPA is Northamptonshire County Council.

Below you will find some useful information relating to planning which we hope you find helpful.

The national Planning Portal is your one-stop shop for planning and building services online.
