The deadline for the submission of requests to speak is 12 noon one day before the meeting. Requests should be submitted to Democratic Services using the contact details on the front of this agenda.

 

Further information about how public speaking is managed at meetings is contained in the Planning Committee Protocol for Public Speaking and Statements, a copy of which is included with this agenda sheet and is also published on the website on the following page:

 

https://democracy.bcpcouncil.gov.uk/mgCommitteeDetails.aspx?ID=290

 

Part A of the Protocol will apply to this meeting of the Planning Committee, summarised as follows:

 

Speaking at Planning Committee (in person or virtually*):

 

·        There will be a maximum combined time of five minutes to speak in objection and up to two persons may speak within the five minutes.

·        There will be a further maximum combined time of five minutes to speak in support and up to two persons may speak within the five minutes.

·        No speaker may speak for more than half this time (two and a half minutes) UNLESS there are no other requests to speak received by the deadline OR it is with the agreement of the other speaker.

*The Chairman has agreed to exercise his discretion to enable speakers to join the meeting remotely on MS Teams if preferred. For further information please contact Democratic Services.

 

 

Submitting a statement to Planning Committee as an alternative to speaking:

 

·        Anyone who has registered to speak by the deadline may, as an alternative to attending/speaking in person or virtually, submit a written statement to be read out on their behalf.

·        Statements must be provided to Democratic Services by 12noon one day before the meeting.

·        A statement must not exceed 450 words (and will be treated as amounting to two and a half minutes of speaking time).

 

Please refer to the full Protocol document for further guidance.

 

 

Note: The public speaking procedure is separate from and is not intended to replicate or replace the procedure for submitting a written representation on a planning application to the Planning Offices during the consultation period.
