Committee details

Joint Development Control Committee - Development Control Forum

Purpose of committee

A joint 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 by the Joint Development Control Committee.


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.
