Planning Committee

Our Planning Committee is made up of 21 Councillors, also known as Members, or Ward Members.

Meetings take place once a month, usually every third Tuesday of each month at 6:30pm. You can see all Planning Committee dates and the accompanying papers using the link below.

Not all planning applications are discussed and decided at Planning Committee, usually only those which meet the following criteria:

  • Applications called in by a Councillor
  • Some applications which are contrary to planning policy
  • Applications submitted by a member of staff
  • Applications on Council owned land

If an application is being heard at Planning Committee, notifications will be sent directly to the applicant/agent of the application and any neighbours or members of the public who have officially submitted comments on the application. This will confirm the committee date along with details about speaking at planning committee.

Planning Committee is a public meeting and is open to anyone to attend and observe the meeting.

Due to the current circumstances caused by the Coronavirus, Planning Committee meetings will be virtual meetings via Microsoft Teams until further notice.

Virtual Planning Committee

In order to manage the event online and the numbers of people involved, the feed will only involve seeing the Chairman of the Planning Committee. No other speakers in the event will be able to be seen, however everyone will be able to hear everyone else.

Once all Committee details have been finalised and the virtual meeting has been set up, we will provide a link on this page which will open a web version of Microsoft Teams in your web browser. There is no need to download or install Microsoft Teams to view this meeting.

The Council does not need to keep a record of who viewed this meeting so you can join the meeting as an anonymous user.
