Information about Development Control Committee


The Development Control Committee deals with the exercise of the Council's powers in relation to:


·  planning and conservation;

·  the Local Development Plan - where it recommends the Plan to the Executive;

·  highways use and regulation;

·  common land and village greens.


There are four plans sub-committees, meeting on a fortnightly basis, which administer the Council's responsibilities as a local planning authority and in relation to building control matters. Some decisions on these issues are delegated to appropriate officers.


Members of the public can speak at Development Control and Plans Sub-Committees on particular applications – one in support and one objecting. Speakers must contact the Democratic Services Team on 020 8461 7840 or before 10am on the working day before the meeting.


Further details are available in Planning Division Information Sheet 1.4.
