Our Planning Process – further information

In our latest Newsletter the Chair provides an update on the planning process adopted by Wellow Parish Council.

Unfortunately, due to a lack of space, a large section of the article had to be cut.

However, the Parish Council is keen that residents are kept informed about what happens at the Parish Council, so we thought it would be helpful to post this additional information on the website.
