The Parish Council is consulted on applications for developments within the Parish of Molescroft. When received, all Councillors are made aware of the application and all relevant supporting documentation for example elevations, location and site plans are reviewed.
If deemed necessary a site visit may be convened but not as a matter of routine. Each application is considered on its merits and is discussed at the earliest Parish Council Meeting prior to the Council providing consultee comments and any recommendation to the East Riding of Yorkshire Council.
All recommendations are derived having considered the "material planning considerations" detailed below.

The East Riding of Yorkshire Council has overall responsibility for deciding on all planning applications within the County and Parish of Molescroft. They offer a number of e-planning services, including Public Access enabling residents to view, track and comment on current applications, view live application plans and documents, submit a planning application on line, view past decision notices, and view Planning Committee agendas, reports and minutes.

Always talk to your neighbours about what you are trying to achieve.
Ring the East Riding Planning Office (01482 393647) and explain to them what you intend to do - they will be able to advise you if you need full planning permission or not.
If, for example, you are applying for a large extension or an unusual alteration, ask for a site visit, they can then advise you whether the application is feasible.
After taking on board your neighbours' views (and planning officers' comments if necessary) have your plans drawn up and submitted.
If you follow the above steps in this order, the planning process may prove less daunting and could save time in the long run
Please remember, the Parish Council are here to help and best represent the needs of the Parish. Our job is to ensure that the interests of Molescroft residents are observed in all planning matters this may mean supporting or objecting to proposals.
These are the latest planning applications/projects put before the Parish Council.
