Committee Arrangements

Chairman to ask the committee to give consideration to a change of start time for future planning committees, from evening to afternoon.  Suggested start time of 2pm.  Meeting time limit would remain at 4 hours.

 

A move to daytime meetings could facilitate Case Officers presenting their own reports and answering detailed questions from Councillors, including those arising from any information given by public speakers.

Minutes:

The Chairman of the Planning Committee invited members to vote on the proposed arrangement to hold further meetings of the Planning Committee during the day for a trial period of up to May 2019.

 

The Chairman asked that the present substitutes refrain from voting, leaving the vote to only standing members. In view of this, the Chairman had gathered the opinions of all of the standing members who could not attend this meeting. Out of 4 members who were not in attendance, 2 were in favour of the proposal, and 2 were against the proposal.

 

Members stated that they felt that the parking provision would be difficult for members of the public during office hours. In addition, they felt that the majority of the public work during the daytime and therefore would find it hard to attend.

 

The Chairman stated that he felt the move to daytime meetings would satisfy a greater quality of debate as it would allow case officers to be present

 

AGREED

 

That no change be made and the current arrangements be retained.
