Telling the Planning Committee what you think
If you would like to make written representations or speak at the Planning Committee about a particular planning application you must comment or register in writing by 9.30am on the Friday before the meeting. Where a number of individuals or a group wishes to speak against an application they should agree a spokesperson who can speak on their behalf.
The procedure is as follows:
Chairman announces application
Planning officer presentation
Speakers against and for the application
Debate and decision by Planning Committee
How to find out what was decided
You can find out details of what was decided and view a scanned copy of the decision notice which shows whether there were any conditions on the planning permission or what the reasons for refusal were by using the planning application search.
