The Planning Board meets every month to consider and determine planning applications, the adoption of planning/development briefs and other development control and planning enforcement matters.
Members of the Planning Board will be entitled to vote on matters relating to land or premises within their own wards, as well as all other areas.
Contacting Members of the Planning Board
You can email all Members of the Planning Board directly using email@example.com. Please note that information submitted will be considered as a formal representation to the application. Officers of the Council are unable to pass on your messages to the Planning Board Members for you. Please do not use this email address for raising general queries on planning matters, or on current planning applications, as these should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are emailing in respect of an application due to be considered at the next meeting of the Planning Board, in order for the information to be made public and given weight at the meeting, it should be submitted by no later than 5pm on the Friday before the date of the Board meeting at which the specific application will be discussed.
Any additional information submitted after this time may then form part of a verbal update at the Board meeting by Officers but, as other interested parties may not have seen this material, it will be treated as information only and will carry only very limited weight at the Planning Board Meeting. Please note that we cannot make films or recordings public so these will always be treated as having very limited weight.
