The Parish Council is consulted about planning applications for development in the parish and in nearby Granta Park, which is in Great Abington.

The Parish Council  is a consultee for planning matters. It makes recommendations to South Cambs District Council (SCDC), which is the Local Planning Authority and decision maker.

In general planning applications are discussed at Parish Council meetings. Sometimes a Planning Committee Meeting will be held. This may be because the planning application needs time for review and discussion including allowing adequate time for public participation or because Parish Council meeting schedules  will not meet the tight time scales the District Council requires.   If so, those meetings are recorded on this page.

SCDC maintains a database of planning applications on its website. From this, you can find details of applications, plans and decisions by picking ""View a planning application". A search facility enables you to locate at least some details of applications dating back many years and full details for several years. This can also be found here:

For example, to locate recent applications in Little Abington, pick "Search For a Planning Application"; choose "Little Abington CP" and a suitable "Date Registered From" and then press Search. This will give a list of applications, from which you can choose one to study by clicking its reference number.

A page will open for the application with a description of the proposed development, details of the applicant and a tabbed section for further information: Applicant & Agent Details; Decision & Publicity; Plans & Docs; Appeal Details; Map Details.
