The Parish Council takes a keen interest in planning matters and works tirelessly to defend and improve the environment.
Through its Planning sub-committee, the Council reviews and comments on all planning applications in the parish (about 200 annually), with the objective of preserving and enhancing the built environment and protecting open spaces.
We pay special attention to the three Conservation Areas in the Parish, in the heart of Thelwall and Grappenhall Villages and at York Road/Victoria Road in Grappenhall. The basis of the Council’s stance on planning matters is the Village Design Statement which was approved in 2003 after two years of hard work involving a team of community volunteers. The Village Design Statement can be downloaded by clicking the button below.
