Planning in Keevil

Keevil Parish Council is a statutory consultee of Wiltshire Council (the Planning Authority) on all planning applications 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. The Parish Council has no powers to approve or reject, the decision is made by the Planning Authority.

In September 2022, Keevil Parish Council adopted a Planning Policy based on the core principles of the Village Design Statement (2003) and the majority outcomes of the Village Survey (2019):

Planning Meetings

Planning applications are considered at the normal bi-monthly council meetings unless the deadline for comment falls between meetings, in which case an additional meeting will be convened and noted on the Meetings page.

You can search for planning applications on Wiltshire Council’s website – which now includes the weekly lists of new applications and decisions.

You can find full details of all full planning applications in Keevil going back to 2018 on the village website.
