How to register an interest to speak
If you wish to speak at committee, you must register your intention no later than 12 noon on the Tuesday before the Committee meeting. The quickest way to register is to contact us. You will need to provide your name, address, contact number, the application number and state whether you wish to speak in support of, or object to the application.
Speakers are registered on a first-come, first-served basis and places can fill up quickly. Sometimes more people than there are places, wish to speak. When you call to register we will advise you if this is the case and if so, we will put you in touch with others that are registered to speak on the same application.
Planning committee meetings start at 5pm and are held every 3 weeks on a Wednesday at County Hall.
Those who have registered their interest to speak should arrive at the venue at least 20 minutes before the start to be briefed on the procedure. We cannot specify finish times for these meetings, as this will depend on the number and complexity of the applications being discussed.
Agendas and reports for forthcoming meetings are available on our committee management pages. You can also read minutes from previous meetings and find full details of the councillors on our Planning Applications Committee.
