West Berkshire Council

Committee details

District Planning Committee

Purpose of committee

The District Planning Committee is appointed at the annual Council meeting to consider, on behalf of the Council, recommendations from Area Planning Committees. The membership is drawn from the Eastern and Western Area Planning Committees. Provisional meetings are arranged but will only be held when applications are referred up.

 

The District Planning Committee will consider recommendations deemed by the Development Control Manager and/or his representative to have:

 

·          a possible conflict with a policy that would undermine the Local Plan or the Local Development Framework;

·          a district-wide public interest; or

·          the possibility for claims for significant costs against the Council.

 

If the majority of members of an Area Planning Committee vote to do so they can also ask that the District Planning Committee determines a planning application.
