Can a parish council delegate a function, under s101 of the Local Government Act 1972, to their clerk to unilaterally comment on planning applications received from the local planning authority, and without convening a meeting to discuss the applications, and then submit the employee’s comments to the local planning authority as representations of the parish council? I always believed that this function was delegated to the parish council or a sub-committee of the parish council and not to an individual officer. Thank you.
Many thanks for your explicit answer!
