Covid-19 and meetings
From 7 May 2021, the law requires all councils to hold formal meetings in person. However, the Council is also required to follow government guidance about safety during the pandemic. The Council will enable all people to continue to participate in meetings via Zoom.
You are encouraged to participate via Zoom to keep everyone safe - there is limited capacity in meeting rooms if safety requirements are to be met. There are restrictions and conditions which apply to those in the building and the use of the building.
Please read the new meeting protocol which is available here:
If you want to ask a question or speak, email your full name to Committee@middevon.gov.uk by no later than 4pm on the day before the meeting. This will ensure that your name is on the list to speak and will help us ensure that you are not missed – as you can imagine, it is easier to see and manage public speaking when everyone is physically present in the same room. Notification in this way will ensure the meeting runs as smoothly as possible.
The Planning Committee exercises functions on behalf of the Council relating to:
Planning and Conservation functions relating to town and country planning
development control and all matters concerning trees; and
To confirm and consider changes to the existing Scheme of Delegation to the Head of Planning.
Public Question Time is available at the beginning of the meeting for those present to ask questions about any item on the agenda, or to speak briefly by way of background or introduction to those questions, including planning applications.
Further detailed procedures for those attending the Planning Committee are available via the following link:
