Decisions

The relevant committees make decisions on those applications that have been referred to it. There are a numbers of reasons for referral but the most common are where a Councillor has requested this, or where the planning officer considers that the committee needs to make the decision. The majority of planning applications (around 95%) are decided by the planning officers under what’s known as ‘delegated powers’.
