Protocol for Public Statements at Planning Committee pdf icon PDF 309 KB

The Committee is asked to consider and agree the attached Protocol for Public Statements at Planning Committee as proposed, or make such amendments as the Committee considers appropriate.

 

The Protocol has been drafted in response to the following provision in section 10 of Article 16: Covid-19 Interim Decision Making Arrangements:

 

“The Planning Committee Protocol for Public Speaking shall not apply during the Interim Period and the provisions of this Article shall apply to statements and representations to be made at Planning Committee by members of the public, applicants and ward councillors. It is recognised that due to its quasi-judicial role in determining planning applications the Planning Committee will need to have particular regard to representations made by members of the public, applicants and ward councillors and the Committee shall have authority to agree further specific procedures in due course to supplement those provided for in this Article. For the avoidance of doubt the deadline for submission of statements and representations in respect of matters before the Planning Committee is 12:00 noon the day before the meeting. This deadline may be changed should the Planning Committee agree further specific procedures as referenced in this paragraph.”

 

Minutes:

The Committee considered the Protocol for Public Statements at Planning Committee, with the recommendation being to agree as proposed and to make such amendments as was considered appropriate.

                                               

RESOLVED that the Protocol for Public Statements at Planning Committee be agreed as proposed.

 

Voting: Unanimous.
