How we decide planning applications

Find out how we decide planning applications in Aldershot and Farnborough.

We decide planning applications in two ways:

  • If it is a straightforward, small-scale application with no objections, our Head of Planning will make the decision under our pdf icon Scheme of Delegation [18kb].
  • If it is a more complex and potentially controversial application, such as where there have been lots of objections or if it conflicts with our planning policies, our Development Management Committee meetings will decide.

Commenting on a planning application

We encourage people to comment on planning applications, as want to know your views. For more information on how to do this, please see our How to comment on a planning application page.

Speaking at Development Management Committee meetings

If you want to speak directly to the Development Management Committee about a particular planning application, you may be able to do so. For more details, please see our Speaking at Development Management Committee meetings page.

Site visits by the Development Management Committee

Sometimes, our Development Management Committee wants to a visit a site before making a decision on a planning application. You can find out more about these visits on our Site visits by the Development Management Committee page.
