Proposed Changes to the Scheme of Delegation for Determining Planning Applications and the Planning Protocol pdf icon PDF 166 KB

To consider a report of the Deputy Chief Executive.

 

The planning system in England has undergone a period of significant change over recent years. During this time multiple new types of applications have been introduced and most recently an increased focus is being placed on the importance of making timely decisions.

 

In light of the changes to the planning system and the increased emphasis placed on the speed and quality of planning decisions it is considered necessary to consider the need to make a number of changes to the scheme of delegation for the determination of planning applications. In parallel it is also considered appropriate to review the Planning Protocol to ensure that it reflects accurately long-standing custom and practice in how we exercise our planning powers.

 

The Committee is recommended to consider and comment on the proposed amendments in the attached documents.
