PC Planning Committee Meeting

This is a formal meeting held at the Hart District Council offices in Harlington Way, once per month (generally on the 2nd Wednesday). This is where the more significant planning applications are either approved or refused. The meeting is attended by the Hart Councillors (who are designated to Planning), the Planning Officers, the Council’s solicitor, and representatives from some of the Council departments, e.g. Highways. There is also a public gallery. Members of the public are not allowed to speak at these meetings unless they have applied for and have been accepted as a designated speaker for or against the particular application being discussed. The meeting follows a formal and often fast moving format, and attending a meeting is useful experience if you are new to the planning process. A reserve date is also set in the frequent event that time does not allow for all applications to be determined in the one evening.
