The Parish Council is consulted by the Local Planning Authority (Stroud District Council) on current planning applications in the Parish. In Chalford this is dealt with by a committee, the Plans Assessment Committee, which meets every 2 to 3 weeks to consider current planning applications. These meetings are advertised on Parish notice boards and members of the public are permitted to attend and speak on a planning matter if they wish. Please contact the Parish Clerk/Assistant Clerk for further advice on this.
The following guidelines are used by the Parish Council Plans Assessment Committee when considering their response to the Local Planning Authority as consultees for planning applications in the parish.
PLEASE NOTE: The whole of Chalford Parish is in the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and has 6 Conservation Areas. Both of these designations restrict your “permitted development rights” (i.e. you will need to apply for planning permission for certain types of work which do not need an application in other areas). We strongly recommend you check with Stroud District Council planning department before planning or commencing any building work on your property. Tel. (01453) 754 442
Planning permission advice
If you wish to carry out work on trees on your property and you live in the Conservation Area you are required to notify SDC before commencing.

Community Infrastructure Levy
The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) allows local authorities in England and Wales to raise funds from developers undertaking new building projects in their area. The money can be used to fund a wide range of infrastructure that is needed as a result of development. SDC adopted CIL in February 2017 and it was implemented on the 01st April 2017.
