Any member of the public can attend Planning Committee meetings. You can also speak at a Committee meeting about a planning application listed on the agenda that you are interested in. If you would like to speak, you need to register just before the start of the meeting.
Please note: registering to speak is on a first come first serve basis. One speaker is allowed in support of an application and one against, each speaking for a maximum of 3 minutes each.
