Committee details

Planning and Regulatory Committee

Purpose of committee

Planning and Regulatory Committee meetings can be viewed live here.


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).


Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, all future meetings of this Committee will be conducted remotely until further notice. These meetings will be streamed live on the council’s website, allowing the public to observe proceedings. All meeting papers, decision sheets and minutes will continue to be published on the council’s website.


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).
