Speaking at a Planning Committee

Who can speak at a Planning Committee meeting and the process to follow

The Planning Committee meets monthly to consider applications that are not dealt with under delegated powers.

The Planning Committee agenda will be available one week prior to the meeting.

Supporters and objectors can register to speak at Planning Committee. The purpose of this is to give you an opportunity to make your views known in person. The committee will also consider letters and emails of support or objection.

How do I register to speak?

Anyone who has written or emailed comments in favour or against a planning application can speak at the Planning Committee.

We will write to advise you when the application will be debated at committee and that there will be an opportunity to speak.

Please see the leaflet Public speaking at Planning Committee for further information.

If you do wish to speak at the Planning Committee use our online form.
