How the meeting is run

If you would like to speak at the meeting, please contact us by 5pm the day before.

At the meeting, each application will be taken in the order that it appears on the agenda. 

Slides or plans of the proposals can be shown.

The planning officer will give details of the application and committee members may request clarification from officers on points of fact. 

Applicants, agents, or any member of the public who has asked to speak to the committee will then be given five minutes, followed by any questions from the committee.

The committee will not consider any plans or written material that the applicant or another speaker brings to the meeting.

If you wish the committee to view photographs, please have 20 copies available for each member of the committee.

The committee will then consider the application and make a decision which will be confirmed by the clerk.
