Development Management sub committee

Role of the committee

Some planning decisions are taken by the Development Management sub committee. This happens if the proposal is significant or potentially controversial. The committee usually meets every two weeks, except during holiday periods, and is open to the public.

There are a series of guidance notes which give advice on how the committee works.

If the committee refuses an application, then all appeals go to the Scottish Government's Directorate of Planning and Environmental appeals.
