Frequently asked questions

Will the application be decided at Committee?

The majority of applications are determined under Delegated Powers by the Head of Sustainable Development. In general, all applications will be determined under Delegated Powers unless the application meets one of the criteria detailed on the Scheme of Delegation.  If the application meets one of these criteria it would need to be referred to Planning Committee for consideration. Everyone who submitted representations will be notified in writing of the date and venue of the Committee in advance of the meeting.

Planning Committees are held fortnightly at Causeway House, Braintree and it is here that the elected Councillors will make a final decision on the application. Committee Meetings are open to the public and you may ask a question or make a statement.
