How we make decisions
Decision making processes and records of decisions
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, physical public meetings are not taking place for the foreseeable future. Following a decision noted by cabinet, executive decisions and certain non-executive decisions were delegated to officers using emergency powers invoked during a major incident. On 30 September, at the Emergency Powers Executive Decisions meeting, it was agreed that certain executive and non-executive decisions and arrangements continue until 31 March 2021. Delegated decisions can be viewed here
Speaking at virtual Planning Committee
The current procedures for public speaking at virtual meetings of the Planning Committee will be supplementary to our normal procedure, and the only changes will be to the way in which external councillors register to speak and the format in which individuals are able to put their views across to the committee. These changes are to accommodate the change of venue (from physical meetings to virtual meetings) and to ensure all external speakers are able to put their views across in a format to suit.
What this means in practical terms
Parish Councillors, County Councillors, applicants, agents and members of the public who wish to register their intent to speak at the Planning Committee meeting should contact the Democratic Services Officer 24 hours (usually 14:00) before the committee meeting:
- Democratic Services Officer name: Emma Keany
- Telephone: 01253 887476
- Email: email@example.com
Individuals should also detail the way in which they would like to address the committee. The Democratic Services Officer will then make arrangements with the individuals who have successfully registered to speak.
- Timetable of council meetings and meeting documents - including agendas, reports, background papers and minutes of council committees and forums
- Public consultations
- Council constitution
- Evidence based planning documents - facts and analyses of facts considered when framing major planning policies
