Keevil Parish Council is a statutory consultee of Wiltshire Council (the Planning Authority) on all planning applications for within the parish. Any views expressed by the Parish Council will be taken into account by the Planning Authority before a decision is made, providing the points made are relevant to the determination of that planning application. However, the Parish Council has no powers to approve or reject applications – only to comment or not – and the decision is made by the Planning Authority not the Parish Council.

Planning applications are considered by the Parish Council at their bi-monthly meetings or, if the deadline for comment falls between meetings, at an additional meeting, advertised in line with requirements and open to members of the public.

Parishioners can comment on planning applications, direct to the Planning Authority (Wiltshire Council) website, via this link:

Or by email to:

The Wiltshire Local Plan and Gypsy and Travellers Plan 

The consultation on these Plans closed on 9th March 2021.
