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
- Listed Building
- consent for works to
trees in Conservation Areas and trees protected by Tree
- applications for
hedgerow removal; and
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 two days prior to 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.
The usual process for public speaking is continuing to be followed
at meetings of the Planning Committee.
However, during the Covid 19 pandemic mitigating measures have been
taken to reduce the risk of Covid 19 transmission. Therefore, wherever
possible, there will be space between people attending the meetings
in person and public speakers also have the ability to join the
meeting remotely on Microsoft Teams o 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 1406 / email: firstname.lastname@example.org
