Braintree District Council is the local planning authority, and is responsible for deciding whether a development - anything, from an extension on a house to a new shopping centre - should go ahead. It is BDC who have the final decision on whether an Application is granted or refused - Great Maplestead Parish Council is a consultee only.

Planning Applications can be viewed at the Braintree District Council (BDC) Planning Office, Causeway House, Braintree, Essex, CM7 9HB, using the Reference No. allocated.

Details of the latest/current applications can be seen by going to the BDC Planning website, entering the Reference Number and clicking 'Search'.
