What is the panel?
The Panel is made up of elected members of the council who have delegated powers to make decisions regarding planning permission. They meet periodically to consider planning applications which are large or complex, controversial or have many objectors. Members of the public are invited to attend meetings of the Planning and the Rights of Way Panel but should be aware of the protocol for dealing with planning matters that is available from the documents listed below.
