Local Code of Conduct for Councillors and Officers Dealing with Planning Matters
In determining planning applications it is important that the process is undertaken in an open and transparent manner. Accordingly, the Council has adopted a Code of Conduct that applies to both officer's and councillors who deal with planning matters. This document explains how the decision making processes work in relation to planning applications and also to the Local Development Framework and provides guidance to officers and councillors to ensure that all planning related business is conducted fairly, equitably and impartially.
