Sonning Common Parish Council

Planning Applications

The Parish Council does not have the power to determine planning applications but is consulted by South Oxfordshire District Council on all applications under consideration. Members of S.O.D.C. or officers with delegated powers make the decisions.

This list is refreshed every Monday.

Clicking on an underlined Planning Application link will take you directly to the South Oxfordshire District Council Planning Portal where you can access full details of the application, view any associated plans, comment on the application, read the comments made by the Parish Council and read the decision when it has been made.

All about planning.  If you need to know anything about planning, whether thinking about making an application or worrying about one that might affect you, the Government Planning Portal has everything you might need to know and lots more besides.
