In Wem Rural Parish, ensuring that all building and development work complies with planning regulations is essential for maintaining the safety, character, and sustainability of our community. Applying for planning on the  Shropshire Council Planning Portal to submit planning applications before starting any work is a vital step in this process.

Why Apply for Planning Permission?

  1. Legal Compliance: Starting building work without planning permission can lead to enforcement actions, including fines, work stoppages, and even orders to demolish unauthorized constructions. Applying for planning permission ensures compliance with local and national laws.
  2. Project Feasibility: Securing planning approval confirms that your project is feasible and meets all necessary regulations, helping you avoid costly modifications or delays later.
  3. Community and Environmental Considerations: The planning process includes public consultations and environmental assessments, ensuring that new developments consider the needs and concerns of the local community and environment.
  4. Access to Resources and Guidance: The Shropshire Council Planning Portal offers resources and expert guidance to help applicants prepare comprehensive and compliant applications, making the process smoother and more efficient.

Submitting planning applications through the Shropshire Council Planning Portal before starting any building work is crucial for ensuring that developments within Wem Rural Parish are safe, compliant, and considerate of the community and environment.
