Planning Committee

Purpose of committee

The terms of reference for the Planning Committee are set out in Part 7 of the Council’s Constitution, located in the Library section of this website.

 

The Planning Committee meets every month to decide upon planning applications not dealt with by officers under delegated powers.

 

Applications are referred to the Planning Committee which satisfies one or more of the following criteria:

·         when requested by a Member of the Council;

·         where major matters of planning policy are involved;

·         where the Council would be involved in any financial liability;

·         where there is significant public interest; and

·         where considered appropriate by the Deputy Chief Executive, Growth & Regeneration.

 

Up to 3 public speakers (on a first come, first served basis) may address the Committee on each application for no more than 3 minutes. Persons wishing to speak must register their wish to do so with Democratic Services (020 8496 4537) by no later than noon on the day of the meeting. Applicants or their agent are also able to speak at the meeting. Full details of the public speaking protocol are set out in the Planning Code of Practice.

 

The Committee also deals other functions contained within the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 and related legislation including Historic Building Grants but does not deal with planning policy issues.
