Committee details

Planning Committee

Purpose of committee

The purpose of the Committee is to decide planning applications that have been referred to them for consideration.


The Committee usually meets 12 times a year and County Hall where the meeting is webcast.  The Committee is made up of 12 councillors appointed to reflect the political balance of the Council.


Members of the public are allowed to speak if they have presented a petition to Council with no fewer than 50 Cardiff electors’ signatures with addresses.  The application has a right of response at that time, however, that only applies if the objector(s) has registered to speak. 


Meetings of the Planning Committee are webcast live and are available following the meeting on the Council Website.
