Planning Policy

Porlock Weir

The Policy & Community Team is responsible for preparing and monitoring planning policy documents to guide future development and use of land within Exmoor National Park. These documents are also used for making decisions on planning applications and appeals.

When a planning decision is made Supplementary Planning Guidance, Government planning policy and guidance, Neighbourhood Development Plans and other ‘material considerations’ should also be considered.
