Tendring District Council is the planning authority for Brightlingsea and has the power to approve or reject applications.
Applications to TDC come before Brightlingsea Town Council for comment. The town council can support or object to an application, but cannot approve or reject. TDC’s planning committee and officers may or may not take any comments by the town council into consideration.
Currently none of Brightlingsea’s Tendring councillors sit on the district council’s planning committee.
