Meetings of the Authority
The main business of the Authority is conducted at monthly Authority Meetings held normally on the first Friday of each month, commencing at 12 noon or on the rising of the Development Management Committee, whichever is the later. The Development Management Committee considers planning applications and other development management matters. The Audit and Governance Committee meets quarterly to scrutinise the activity of the Authority and the Standards Committee meets bi-annually to ensure and maintain high standards of conduct by Members and Officers of the Authority.
Meetings of the Authority and its committees are held at the Authority’s Headquarters at Parke, Bovey Tracey.
With the exception of very occasional confidential matters, all of the formal business of the meetings of the Authority and its committees is conducted in public session. The Calendar of Meetings can be viewed on our website.
The Authority has adopted a Good Practice Guide in relation to the Development Management Committee.
Agendas for all meetings of the Authority and its committees are placed on the Authority’s website 7 days in advance of the meeting.
Information about attending meetings can be found on the Public Participation at meetings of the Authority page.
There are notes to explain Site Inspection procedures.
