To receive communications from the Chairman.


The Chairman warmly welcomed all Members and Officers to the inaugural meeting of the South Northamptonshire Local Area Planning Committee.


In response to questions from Members, the Chairman provided clarification on the process that would be followed in the future should a Parish Council object to a planning application, namely, that an objection received from a Parish Council is not an automatic reason in itself for a planning application to be brought before the Committee for consideration.
