Development Management Practice Note 1 "Public Speaking in Planning Committees"

Date: 1/2/2007

It is generally considered good practice to provide the opportunity for objectors and supporters to address a Committee which is making decisions on controversial or important planning applications. It creates the opportunity for people to feel more involved in the decision making process by being able to articulate their concerns before a decision is taken.

Many individual authorities have worked out detailed procedural schemes, but no general guidance has been published comparing schemes and advising authorities on establishing or reviewing "public speaking" arrangements. This guidance note has been drawn from discussions on best practice and is intended to provide such guidance.
