One of the functions of the Parish Council is to comment on planning applications within the Parish. Only neighbouring properties receive notification of applications, and are invited by the council to give their views. However anyone is at liberty to submit their opinions for consideration by the planning authorities.

The Parish Council receives plans from the East Riding and these are generally discussed at a monthly meetings. Members of the public are entitled to attend meetings and hear the discussion. The Council does NOT have the power to grant or withhold planning permission, but recommends to the East Riding of Yorkshire Council that the application be granted or refused by the Planning Committee.
