Have your say on planning in Worcestershire?
The planning consultation database for the county is being refreshed and Worcestershire County Council would like to invite residents and businesses to register so that they can have their say on planning matters.
The Council plays a significant planning role across the whole of Worcestershire including policies and strategies about minerals and waste and major infrastructure projects like new railway stations and bridges.
Councillor Marc Bayliss, Worcestershire County Councillor with Responsibility for Economy Infrastructure and Skills, said:
“Community engagement plays a vital role in the way we make our plans, and I cordially invite residents and businesses to register to participate and influence this process.
Our work includes developing important strategies relating to ecology and biodiversity that make Worcestershire distinct and special, as well as planning for infrastructure such as schools and highway projects.
This is a great way for people to hear about what is going on and get involved in the planning work we do.”
