Planning committee

The Planning Committee generally deals with larger or more complicated applications. Applications  are decided by Councillors with advice from the planning officers. These meetings take place monthly.

You are welcome to attend any planning committee meeting and view the agenda papers which are available five working days before the meeting.

The planning meetings are also streamed live for you to watch.

Speak at a planning committee meeting

We encourage public speaking at planning committee meetings. You need to: 

  • comment in writing on the application during the consultation period
  • register to speak by midday on the Monday before the meeting.

For more information on speaking at the meetings visit the Public participation page.
