Committee details

Planning Committee

Purpose of committee

The Planning Committee is established to discharge all the functions of the Council as a Local Planning Authority, except for those reserved to Council or Executive Board.  If an application for planning permission involves complex or sensitive issues, if it represents a significant departure from the City Council’s Development Plan, or if formal objections to it have been raised, then the application cannot be resolved by the Council planning officers and it is determined by the Planning Committee. The Executive Board is responsible for formulating the Development Plan, for approval by the full Council, and it consults the Planning Committee as part of the drafting process.  The Committee is made up of sixteen councillors appointed to reflect the political balance of the Council.
