Do I have to attend the meeting to make my comments known to committee?

No, you can:

  • Put your comments in writing. Whilst the full text of any letters received in connection with a planning application is not necessarily relayed to Committee members, any issues and concerns will be included in the assessment and/or referred to in the officer's presentation.
  • Ask your District Councillor to speak on your behalf.
  • If the officer's recommendation is the same as your view, you may decide not to attend and speak. However, the officer recommendation is not always agreed by Committee.
