Third Party Representations to Planning Applications

30/07/2021 - Third Party Representations to Planning Applications

The Cabinet considered a report of the Deputy Chief Executive and Executive Director (Neighbourhoods and Environment) setting out proposed changes to the development control system regarding notification of third parties which would remove the right of neighbours and other interested parties to comment on planning applications when they are submitted in areas zoned for growth or renewal.




That the motion proposed by Steven Reed MP, set out at Appendix 1 to the submitted report, be approved.


Reasons for decision:


To highlight the proposed changes to the development control system and add the Council’s support to the motion by Stephen Reed MP to retain local residents’ right to object to individual planning applications.  Without such rights being enshrined, the ability of local communities to shape new development in a manner that best reflects local character and identity will be diminished.


Other options:


Not to support the motion passed by the House of Commons.


Note: This is an Executive Function

Eligible for call-in to: Place Scrutiny Committee

Cabinet Member: Cllr Mulroney
