Public meetings are an important part of the consideration of development applications (DAs) by the Planning Panels. The purpose of the meeting is for the Planning Panel to hear those who wish to express their view on the DA before a decision is made.
The public meeting is in addition to the opportunity to provide a written submission to the relevant council during the public exhibition period.
Where the Planning Panel is acting as the Relevant Planning Authority, the planning proposal will typically be formally exhibited for public comment once they have passed through the Gateway. The Planning Panel may also elect to hold a public meeting on the planning proposal after the close of the public exhibition period.
More detail on the public meeting process can be found in the Planning Panels Operational Procedures.
