Planning committees

Most applications (90%) are dealt with without going to a planning committee.  An application may go to the committee on either a ‘minor’ or ‘major’ category of application.  All ’other’ category applications are delegated (decided by the Head of Planning).  A councillor can request most applications to be considered by the planning committee and are encouraged to explain why with planning reasons.

A planning committee meeting is held every 4 weeks.

However, please note that some documentation was lost in the fire at our Crowmarsh offices in January 2015 and is therefore no longer available. For more information about availability of specific information please contact us.

Public speaking

The council encourages public speaking at planning committee meetings.  However, you must have commented in writing on the application during the consultation period and register to speak by midday the day before the meeting.
