Who makes the decision on the application? 

The council’s planning team will analyse all the application documents and plans that will be submitted as part of the application. All these will be available to view on the council’s website once the application has been submitted. The summary of their analysis will be presented to a group of elected councillors – the Strategic Development Committee. At a meeting open to the public, they will hear a summary of the application from the planning officers and will also hear from supporters and objectors. They will then decide whether or not the application should be approved. The meeting will either be online or in person depending on the situation at the time.
