A Guide to Public Speaking at a Planning Committee

All members of the public are welcome to attend formal meetings of Planning Committees to listen to the debate and the decisions being taken.

If you have written to the council during the consultation period about an application that is to be considered by the committee, any relevant planning or rights of way issues raised in your letter will be appraised by the case officer and summarised within the committee report. You will also receive a letter informing you of the committee date and inviting you to attend the meeting.
