Information about Planning

Nine Councillors sit on the Planning Committee at Redditch Borough Council.  The Committee meets every month at Redditch Town Hall.  The membership of the Committee is determined each year at the Council’s Annual Meeting.

 

The Planning Committee has the power to make decisions on the following areas:

 

  • applications for planning consent;
  • Listed Building consent;
  • Conservation consent;
  • Advertisement consent;
  • consent for works to trees in Conservation Areas and trees protected by Tree Preservation Orders;
  • applications for hedgerow removal; and
  • enforcement matters.

 

Not all applications go before the Planning Committee.  Planning Officers are delegated with the power to work on some applications.  If you are uncertain about whether a particular application will go before the Planning Committee please contact Planning Services.

 

Members of the public are welcome to attend meetings of the Planning Committee.  Public speaking is also permitted at meetings of the Committee.  Any member of the public who wishes to speak on a particular application is required to register their interest by no later than 12 noon on the day of the Committee meeting.  There is, however, a protocol for public speaking at meetings with restrictions on the amount of time allowed to address the Committee.

 

UPDATE JUNE 2020

 

In light of the Covid situation and the restrictions on holding gatherings, the meetings of Planning Committee are currently taking place virtually by video conferencing and being live streamed on the Council’s YouTube channel.  The usual process for public speaking is continuing to be followed, and public speakers have the ability to join the video conference to address the committee or to submit their comments in writing.

 

If you would like to register to speak at a meeting of the Planning Committee or want further information on the process for addressing the Committee, please contact Democratic Services (01527) 64252 Ext 3268 / email: democratic@bromsgroveandredditch.gov.uk
