St Mary Bourne Parish Council is a statutory consultee on all planning applications in the parish considered by Basingstoke & Dean Borough Council (BDBC).
Each planning application is considered at a Planning Committee meeting, a Full Council meeting, or occasionally by circulation to the Planning Committee, depending on the consultation deadline set by BDBC.
The Planning Committee meets monthly, except December, generally on the fourth Tuesday of each month, at 6:30pm in the Club Room of the Village Centre.
Members of the public and press are welcome to attend any meeting. There is time allowed for members of the public to speak at the start of the meeting - the amount of time allowed is at the discretion of the chair of the meeting.
