Planning Items under delegated authority – May 2020

(updated 26 May 2020)

Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the May meeting of the South Downs National Park Authority’s (SDNPA) Planning Committee was not  held.

In line with the delegated responsibilities set out in the SDNPA’s Standing Orders the Director of Planning issued decisions for the items below following consultation with members of the SDNPA Planning Committee.

Additional Representations

Anyone who ordinarily would have wished to speak at a meeting of the SDNPA Planning Committee on the application or matters for decision was able to submit an additional representation of no more than 500 words by the deadline of 14 May 2020. These representations were restricted to additional comments in light of the officer’s report, and are included in the Public Response sheets below.

All other public comments, received by the case officer or submitted on public access, were précised in the Officers Report to Members or summarised in the Update Sheet if submitted after the officers report was published. This follows the normal committee process.
