Hixon Parish Council is a statutory consultee on all planning applications submitted for development within the parish boundary. The Parish Council can only support or object to planning applications, the final decision is made in most cases by Stafford Borough Council. Hixon Parish Council is also consulted on planning applications submitted to Staffordshire County Council. Hixon Parish Council endeavours to be consistent in how it considers all planning applications and uses The Plan for Stafford Borough and the Hixon Neighbourhood Plan as its point of reference.
