The committee is made up of 15 councillors and usually meets every three weeks. It acts for the council on its functions as the district planning authority. Its powers include determining applications for planning permission; determining listed building consents; enforcing or dispensing with the duty to replace trees; issuing an enforcement notice; authorising prosecutions for breach of planning control. The committee’s role and functions are set out in the Terms of Reference in the Constitution.
The Speaking at Planning Committee page gives details on how members of the public can register to speak and the process that is followed during the meetings.
