The Local Planning Authority for Southwell, which is Newark and Sherwood District Council, has agreed to consult the Society on planning matters affecting our town. The majority of those consultations concern applications for development within the town while a minority are about proposed variations to planning policy.

Such is the ongoing number of consultations received by the Society about proposed developments within the town, a Planning Committee has been established to examine and comment on each application where appropriate.

In responding to consultations the Planning Committee will always try to give useful and constructive criticism as well as deciding whether to support or object to proposals contained in each application. It is particularly concerned in balancing the requirement to protect our many listed buildings and the Conservation Area while acknowledging the changing needs of residents, those seeking affordable housing and the many visitors to the town. The protection of our environment for future generations has also become an important consideration in recent years.
