Purpose of committee
There are five Area Planning Committees which determine smaller scale applications within their respective areas, one of which is Central Buckinghamshire Area Planning Committee (Aylesbury and surrounding areas). The Strategic Sites Committee deals with wider strategic development. Councillors on Planning Committees consider each application on its merits, taking account of current legislation and planning policies.
Maps showing the Area Planning Committee boundaries can be viewed here.
Members of the public who have previously made written representations objecting to, or in support of an application will be invited to speak at the first planning committee meeting at which the matter is considered. If you are interested in speaking at planning committee, you must register in advance of the meeting. Details on how to register will be provided in the invitation to speak sent to you.
More information about public speaking is available here.
