The temporary government
restrictions for holding public meetings and gatherings has now
come to an end. However, due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic,
capacity restrictions are in place within the meeting room.
Priority for public access to the meeting room will be given to
those who have registered to speak on an application to be
considered at this meeting. If there are spaces remaining in the
public gallery after the registered speakers have been seated, then
these seats will be offered to the public on a first come, first
served basis, however, capacity is limited. As such we would
strongly recommend that interested members of the public watch the
proceedings via the live stream on YouTube. Should there be more
registered speakers than the capacity of the room allows, you will
be provided with an estimated time slot for your application.
Please wait outside of the venue until you are called in to speak.
Registered speakers may need to leave the venue following their
chance to speak to allow further speakers access to the
Planning Committee’s main role is to determine applications
for planning permission within the Borough. Not all applications
come before the Planning Committee – decisions on many small
applications are delegated to Officers. The Committee has powers in
relation to listed building and conservation area consent and the
making of tree preservation orders. It also has enforcement powers
to take action against unauthorised developments.
Meetings of the Planning Committee are normally held every 4
weeks. The agenda is available on the web site 5 working days prior
to the Committee meeting.
meetings are open to the public, and members of the public are
allowed to speak. For further details on the arrangements for
public speaking at Planning Committee please download the current

allowed to address the Committee on any applications that are
located in their Ward in accordance with the scheme.
