Due to increased volumes of planning applications being submitted we are experiencing delays validating within our usual time frames. Please be advised that the expected time frame is currently up to 2 weeks from the date the application is received. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
When planning applications or enforcement matters are referred to committee for determination it is our Planning Committee that will make the decision.
The committee has 12 Members and membership of this committee has to be politically balanced (in proportion to the number of members of each political group on the full council).
The committee usually meets every 4 weeks on Wednesdays at 6:30 pm. All meetings are open to the public who have the right to ask questions by following the council’s Public Questions Procedure. Applicants or supporters of planning applications, objectors and local councils may also speak on individual planning applications.
