Taking your views into account
Many decisions are taken by officers under ‘delegated powers’ after consideration of any representations. Where an application is to be decided by the Planning Committee a summary of all representations are included in the report to them.
There is an opportunity for a limited number of interested parties to address the Planning Committee in person. Should you wish to reserve the opportunity to address the Planning Committee it is important to indicate this in any written representations you submit.
However, if you are objecting to an application which clearly complies with Supplementary Planning Guidance/Documents and or policy you do not have the opportunity to refer it to the Planning Committee.
