How we make decisions
Decision making processes and records of decisions
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, public meetings are not taking place for the foreseeable future. Following a decision taken by cabinet, executive decisions and certain non-executive decisions are being delegated to officers using emergency powers invoked during a major incident. Delegated decisions can be viewed here.
Emergency Provisions for Speaking at Planning Committee
The planning committee process will remain mostly unchanged and decisions will be taken on the 1st Wednesday of every month at 2pm, unless there are no applications to consider. The Democratic Services Officer will set up a private remote meeting for the Chief Executive, Head of Planning Services, Planning Development Manager, a Legal Team representative, Democratic Services Officer and the Chairman and/or Vice Chairman of the Planning Committee. The decisions will be taken by the Chief Executive and this meeting will be minuted and published like a ‘normal’ planning committee meeting to the Emergency Arrangements Non- Executive Decisions page. Parish Councillors, County Councillors, Applicants, Agents and Members of the Public who would normally wish to speak at a planning committee meeting should contact the Democratic Services Officer (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 14:00 the day before the decision-making meeting, as is the usual practice for members of the public. Individuals who have registered, should ensure that their comments are made by 13:00 on the day of the decision-making meeting and should be sent to the Democratic Services Officer.
