DELEGATED: Environment & Planning Committee Meeting
THIS MEETING HAS BEEN DELEGATED.
ON OCCASIONS WHERE QUORUM IS NOT MET, THE PLANNING & ENVIRONMENT COMMITTEE WILL TAKE DELEGATED DECISIONS FOR FEEDBACK TO WILTSHIRE COUNCIL ON CURRENT PLANNING APPLICATIONS. AT LEAST THREE COUNCILLORS AND OUR PLANNING EXPERT WILL REVIEW THE APPLICATIONS SO THAT WE CAN MAKE THE BEST RECOMMENDATION WE CAN WITHIN OUR REMIT AND ASSURE COMPLIANCE WITH OUR NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN. THIS FEEDBACK IS AGREED AND SIGNED BY THE COUNCILLORS AND WILL BE POSTED ON THE WC PLANNING SITE ACCORDINGLY.
The Environment & Planning Committee meets every two or three weeks, and aims to champion environmental issues across all areas, including Planning considerations.
In March 2019, Bradford on Avon Town Council declared a Climate Emergency and a summary of projects relating to this will be reported on during this meeting. The Town Council ‘s Climate Emergency strategy, Steering Group actions and further projects can be viewed on our dedicated Climate Emergency page HERE
The Committee also considers every planning application in the town. Comments are sent to Wiltshire Council as part of their consultation procedure.
The aim is to preserve and enhance the town’s character, and to encourage sustainability. The Committee considers the issue of Past and Future Awards to appropriate successfully completed planning applications.
