The task of the Planning Committee is to make recommendations directly to East Dorset District Council for their consideration at their District Planning meeting. Planning Applications can be viewed online here. The Parish Councillors' recommendations try to reflect parishioners' views within the constraints and rules laid down by government planning guidelines.
So, if you want to affect the issue then come along to the meeting.
