About the Council meetings designated for Planning and Related Matters

Most planning applications are decided by Council's urban planners, however some decisions are made at Council meetings designated for Planning and Related Matters.

Council invites the applicant and any objectors to the Planning and Related Matters meeting. Members of the public are also welcome to attend.

The planning process provides further information on the steps involved in planning applications.

Recent changes to the Planning and Related Matters meetings

At the June 2018 Council meeting, Council adopted the Meeting Procedure Local Law 2018 (DOC 366Kb). As part of the new Meeting Procedure Local Law, the Urban Planning Committee was dissolved and the Instrument of Delegation and Terms of Reference revoked.

Decisions relating to planning matters are now made at Council meetings that are specifically held to consider planning and related matters. These meetings still have provision for objectors and developers to address the meeting prior to decisions being made.
