This page lists the meetings for Planning.

Please note that from 14 May 2020, unless otherwise stated, public meetings will take place remotely, with members of the public being able to "attend" via the link provided for that Committee under the date of the meeting.

In the event of any apparent failure of the technology being used for a virtual meeting and consequentially the live streaming of the public meeting fails, the meeting will either be adjourned until such time as it is re-established, or closed and the remaining business transacted at a later date.
