Information about 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.
