Agenda item

Planning Protocol Update (to reflect arrangements for Planning Applications Sub-committee).

Joint report of the Town Clerk, the Executive Director, Environment  and the Comptroller and City Solicitor.


The Committee considered a joint report of the Town Clerk, the Executive Director of Environment and the Comptroller and City Solicitor.


The Comptroller and City Solicitor introduced the report stating that this flowed from the decision of the Court to establish a Planning Applications Sub-Committee and updated the Planning Protocol appropriately to reflect this. It was also suggested that the delegation of planning applications to the new Sub-Committee should include advertisement consent. Members were reminded that a separate, track changes version of the amended Protocol had been circulated to all before the meeting for ease of reference.


RESOLVED – That the Planning and Transportation Committee:


1.     delegate to Planning Applications Sub-committee determination of applications for advertisement consent (where the determination is outside authority delegated to officers);


2.     adopt the amended Planning Protocol in Appendix 1
