About the Regulatory Committee

Information about the Regulatory Committee's role in decision making for major applications.

A formal decision is made on every planning application submitted to us.

We can approve (with or without conditions) or refuse an application. The majority of applications are determined by officers under delegated powers.

Major and more controversial applications are determined by Regulatory Committee who generally meet on a 3-4 weekly basis. An officers' report will be prepared for each application that is to be determined by the committee and these are made available as part of the meeting agenda.

Interested parties are also invited to attend the committee meeting should make themselves familiar with the process and procedures for attending and speaking at committee by downloading the document below:
