Information about Planning and Regulatory Committee

The County Council has had to reluctantly postpone the Planning and Regulatory Committee on 21 May 2020. This will be the first remote meeting of this committee and officers feel that further time is required in order to ensure that all legal requirements are met. Specifically, the council needs to take steps to ensure that all background documents are accessible available online.

Due to the Covid-19 situation, planning site visits are not able to take place so footage of sites that are being considered at the next committee meeting can be accessed on the webcasting portal which can be accessed here (click the Resources tab).


The Planning & Regulatory Committee considers the following non-executive functions under the Local Authorities (Functions and Responsibilities) (England) Regulations 2000 Act as amended. The Council's Constitution sets out the remit of the Committee in greater detail (within Part 3 – Sections 1 and 2).  Many of these functions, however, are delegated to officers (those not in bold).


·        Planning and Development Control

·        Commons Registration

·        Licensing and Registration Functions

·        Health and Safety (other than that undertaken in the Council's capacity as an employer)

·        Births, Deaths and Marriages

·        Rights of Way & Highways

·        Functions relating to elections

·        Development Plans


You can watch the Planning and Regulatory Committee take place live or archived through our Webcasting facility.
