Planning Committee

 This committee considers planning applications that have been received by Dorset Council Planning Authority (LPA), and should be given a 21 day consultation period, before DC LPA make their decision.

The committee is only a consultee in the planning process and does not have any powers to decide on a planning application.
They present a viewpoint of local opinions to Dorset Council, who are the LPA and ultimately make the decision for each application, taking into account any further input from the public or other authorities. 

Notices and agendas of all meetings are posted on the 4 notice boards, 3 clear working days before the meeting date, which are situated at Pinehurst Road outside the parade of shops, on Woolslope Road, on Station Road outside Holly Court and outside West Moors Middle School on Heathfield Road.

The meeting is held at the Council Pavilion, Fryer Field, starting 7pm, and is open to members of the public, who will get 3 minutes to speak each, 10 minutes total.

You can find details of the committee members, agendas, reports and minutes of the West Moors Town Council Planning Consultative Committee meetings, under Council/Agendas and Minutes 

Since July 2021, the Local Planning Authority (Dorset Council) no longer send neighbour consultation letters for planning applications.

A planning site notice is required to be placed at the rear and the front of the property, allowing the public to comment.

You can search for planning applications on the Dorset Council Planning Portal.
