Huntingdonshire District Council is the local Planning Authority and they have full powers when considering planning applications.
Ramsey Town Council is consulted on all applications falling within its boundary. These are considered at the Town Council Planning Meetings which are usually held once a month, although applications may also be heard at Full Council Meetings where appropriate.. The Council reviews all sites and scrutinises the plans for every application, its comments are then passed to HDC for their deliberations. They may take them on board or disregard as they see fit. Members of the public are entitled to attend our Planning Meetings and have an opportunity to speak at the beginning of the meeting.
For residents, you must be aware of the Conservation Area as this imposes further restrictions should your property be located within it. There are also a large number of trees with TPOs (Tree Preservation Orders) and you should check with HDC before you carry out any work on a tree within the town.
See the main Planning page for latest applications.
