Decisions on planning applications are taken either by the Head of Planning under powers delegated to them by the Council or by the Planning Committee, which is made up of 20 elected Councillors.
However in some instances, legislation provides for decisions to be taken by the Welsh Government. This process is known as a ‘Call-In’.
If you wish to attend a meeting you can confirm the time and venue by viewing the Council Diary. You can also view webcasts of live and archived meetings (up to 6 months). Before attending we recommend that you download or view the protocol for public participation at the Planning Committee and guidance notes for site visits.
All reports on planning applications are available for inspection by the public. The Committee Agendas are made available three working days before the date of the meeting.
Applications with the prefix 'E' can be found in the East Report, 'S' in the South report, and 'W' in the West report. A supplementary addendum is prepared for the Board addressing any consultee responses and further representations received after the report was written. Minutes of the meeting are also available 5-10 days after the date of the meeting.
Note: Appeal information and decisions are not located in the Council agendas or minutes. You can find this information on our Planning Appeals page.
