Committee details

Purpose of committee

Planning Committees are responsible for Development Control and Planning matters. Their role is to determine planning applications and regulate the development or use of land including public rights of way.


Buckinghamshire Council has a Strategic Sites Committee which deals with wider strategic development, sites which have a significant impact beyond the specific local area and sites fundamental to the implementation of an adopted or emerging Local Plan.


Public speaking


Speaking arrangements for the strategic sites committee will be the same as the area planning committees, however, there may be more flexibility applied, dependent upon the nature of the application (at the chairman's discretion).


More information about public speaking is available here.
