Next Planning Committee

The next monthly Planning Committee meeting is on Tuesday 4th June --- there will be no Planning Committee in May - and the schedule of applications will be published on the Council’s website www.ardsandnorthdown.gov.uk/planning on 21st May. Committee Meetings are normally held in the Council Chamber at 2 Church Street, Newtownards on the first Tuesday of each month and commence at 7:00pm.

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 lists of planning applications which have been decided by the Planning Committee over the last 8 months are available to view or download below. Should you wish to view a list of applications which was decided more than 8 months ago, please contact the Planning Office.
