This page lists the meetings for Planning Committee.
Most planning decisions can be dealt with by
Council officers but when an application involves complex or
sensitive issues or if objections have been received then it is
determined by the Planning Committee. The Committee also determines planning applications
that would be a significant departure from the Council’s
Development Plan. Full Council is
responsible for adoption of the Development Plan but the Planning
Committee is consulted on its formation and amendment.
The Committee usually meets 12 times a year,
and is made up of 15 councillors appointed to reflect the political
balance of the Council.
Meetings are open to the public.
