About Planning Applications Committee

The Planning Applications Committee decides the bigger and more sensitive planning applications we receive.

Very broadly, applications are considered by Planning Applications Committee if:

  • the application is referred by a district councillor
  • the proposal is of large scale, or
  • the proposal conflicts with planning policy but there are other planning reasons to support.

Otherwise, the decision is likely to be made by the officers under delegated powers and there is no right to speak on these matters. See how planning applications are dealt with for more details.

Members of the public, agents and applicants are able to speak at committee meetings. See questions at council meetings for details.

Planning Applications Committee meets approximately every four weeks. See meeting dates for more information.
