Planning Site Inspection

Purpose of committee

Site Inspections by the Committee can be helpful in reaching a decision on issues where site circumstances are clearly fundamental to the decision.


The criteria for holding site inspections are:


a)      the character or appearance of the development itself is a fundamental planning consideration;

b)     a judgement is required on visual impact; and

c     the setting and surroundings are fundamental to the determination or to the conditions being considered, and cannot reasonably be made without visiting the site in question.


Further information on the conduct of Site visits is set out in the Planning Code whish forms part of the Council’s Constitution, available elsewhere on the Council’s website.
