Committee details

Development Control Forum

Purpose of committee

A development control forum is a meeting where petitioners can present their views to councillors, planning officers and the applicant some weeks before a planning application is finally determined.


The aim of the forum is to allow early discussion of the planning issues raised by petitioners and to explore the scope for building consensus and for resolving concerns.


It is an informal meeting and the forum does not determine the application. A formal committee ultimately determines the application.


Further details concerning the format of the forum are available in Petitions and Development Control Forum.
