Updated changes to decision-making during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic (June 2021)

Following a recent change in the law, members of the planning committee are now meeting again monthly in the council chamber at Hove Town Hall. Meetings start at 2pm on the dates scheduled  and are broadcast online through the webcast link:

However, capacity for members of the public and applicants to address or observe the committee in person are extremely limited until further relaxations are able to be implemented. If you wish to address the committee about an application being debated, you are strongly encouraged still to join the meeting virtually using Microsoft Teams or have a written statement read out on your behalf at the meeting.

Arrangements to have a statement read out, address or attend the committee meeting in person, must be made in advance by contacting democratic.services@brighton-hove.gov.uk

Anybody arriving at the Town Hall without an invite will unfortunately be refused admission.

More details about public speaking opportunities and notice requirements can be found in the Council’s Protocol for Public Representations at Planning Committee.

So what’s due to be debated?

The agenda for the next meeting is published 7 days in advance of the meeting and can be found using the link below:
