Public speaking at Planning Committee meetings

From March 2019 audio recordings of each month’s Planning Committee meeting will be made by the Council, with the exception of items discussed ‘In Committee’.

These audio recordings will be posted on the Council’s webpages after the minutes of the meeting have been ratified at full Council. 

You should listen to both recordings, as Items heard at Planning Committee which relate to matters for which the Planning Committee does not have delegated
powers are subject to ratification by the full Council.

 All comments made by speakers appearing before the Committee, whether elected representatives, planning agents or members of the public, will be included within the recording.

The current membership of the Planning Committee, which was reconstituted in June 2020, is available to view by clicking on the attachment at the foot of the page.
