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
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.
The 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

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