This is the page where we list all of the AGENDAS for Planning Meetings – these Agendas detail the planning submissions for Burnham on Crouch.

In the list of Agendas below (please scroll down), you will find properties or parts of properties that are being considered, or have been considered for planning approval by Burnham on Crouch Town Council.

Click here for a list of planning decisions made by the Town Council.


Making a planning application?

You will need to make your submission to Maldon District Council.

Once their planning department has validated the application, Burnham on Crouch Town Council will consider it at a planning meeting

To find out more or make an application, click here  and follow the instructions.


Is the Town Council’s decision final?

The Town Council’s Planning Committee decides whether to support or oppose local planning applications.

The Town Council CANNOT make final planning decisions – those are made by Maldon District Council and may be subject to appeal.

The Town Council, however, is a statutory consultee for planning applications in Burnham. This means that MDC must consider our recommendations even though it is not obliged to act upon them.

If we fear that MDC planning might override our decision, we will ‘call it in’ – i.e. ask a Maldon District Councillor to insist that it be fully discussed at the next meeting of MDC’s South East Area Planning Committee.

However, sometimes building goes ahead in Burnham despite the Town Council’s objections. A recent case in point is the Burnham Shores development on Remembrance Avenue.

Objections to a planning application made by both MDC and BTC can be overruled by a Planning Inspector on appeal.


What will the Town Council support?

In general, the Town Council is minded to approve well-designed, sensitive planning applications where possible, i.e., where they don’t contradict the Neighbourhood Plan, where they don’t contravene planning law and building regulations, and where they don’t upset immediate neighbours or have a negative impact in the wider community.


Can I speak on planning issues?

Members of the public can only speak on planning issues with the prior agreement of the Town Clerk or the Town Mayor.

You can ask to speak no later than half an hour before the Planning meeting by going to the chamber and asking the Town Clerk.

It is better, however  to call the Council Office during its opening hours or drop in in the days prior to the meeting.

4 speakers are allowed to speak for a maximum of two minutes per application. Those speakers will be the agent, the applicant, and one person for, and one against the application.
