Planning For Frome

How is the town council involved in planning?

There are several ways in which the town council is involved in planning:

  • We are consulted on all planning applications within Frome that are submitted to Mendip District Council.
  • We encourage residents and developers to come and talk to us before submitting applications
  • We have produced a Neighbourhood Plan to enable local people to ensure that they get the right types of development for their community
  • We have produced a Town Design Statement with the aim of improving the quality of existing and future developments in Frome
  • We offer advice and information on all things planning related, from ‘is my house listed’ to ‘how do I make a planning application’

To do this we have a Planning Committee, made up of Frome Town Council staff and Town Councillors, who meet every three weeks. Find out more about the Planning Committee.

We also have a Planning Officer Jane Llewellyn who can be contacted on 01373 465757 and can help with your planning enquiries.
