The parish council is consulted about planning applications for development in the parish and in nearby Granta Park, which is in Great Abington. These applications are usually considered at the parish council's monthly meetings (q.v.) but it is occasionally necessary to convene a separate planning meeting. The parish council makes recommendations to South Cambs District Coucil, which is the planning authority.

South Cambs District Council maintains a database of planning applications on its website. From this, you can find details of applications, plans and decisions by picking ""View a planning application". A search facility enables you to locate at least some details of applications dating back many years and full details for several years. This can also be found here:

For example, to locate recent applications in Little Abington, pick "Search For a Planning Application"; choose "Little Abington CP" and a suitable "Date Registered From" and then press Search. This will give a list of applications, from which you can choose one to study by clicking its reference number.

A page will open for the application with a description of the proposed development, details of the applicant and a tabbed section for further information: Applicant & Agent Details; Decision & Publicity; Plans & Docs; Appeal Details; Map Details.

South Cambridgeshire District Council  (SCDC) is developing its Local  Development Plan (LDP).

The  Plan includes the proposals that local residents were consulted on in 2013. See documents in the side bar.  

More details about the draft LDP can be found on the SCDC website
