Planning Committee

We are holding meetings of the Planning and Development Committee online until further notice. Meetings will be held using the Cisco Webex video conferencing system, and live-streamed on YouTube. You can watch the meeting live via the council's YouTube channel at 1:30pm on the day the meeting is scheduled to take place.

If you wish to speak and make representations at a remote meeting, this will be at the Chair’s discretion, and you'll need to dial-in to the meeting via telephone.


  1. Applications will be placed before the committee in line with the existing scheme of delegation.
  2. Anyone who has made a written representation in relation to the application, as well as the applicant/agent, will be notified by letter or email, if the application is to be taken to a meeting of the Planning and Development Committee. This should happen between 14 and 21 days before the date of the committee meeting.
  3. All written representations (received in time) provided by objectors/supporters will, as normal, be either summarised within, or appended in full, to the committee report. The report is provided to members of the committee in advance of the meeting.
  4. Any member of the public, applicant, agent, or other interested person, who wishes to speak at the remote committee meeting must tell us no later than 12pm (midday) on the Tuesday before the committee (3 days before the meeting). This needs to be done in writing or by email, and you'll need to provide us with your phone number and your email address, if you have one. This will allow us to make contact with you more efficiently.
  5. Anyone who tells us that they wish to speak at the meeting will be given the necessary instructions two days in advance of the committee date. The instructions will enable them to dial into the remote meeting via phone.
