Role of Elected Member

Information on the role of elected members in the pre-planning process.

Generally, elected members have no role in relation to pre-planning. They may submit a pre-planning query on behalf of an applicant and request that advice should be given to the applicant or to the member on their behalf.

However, the elected member has a very important role in determining the planning policy for the county, as set out in such documents as the County Development Plan and Local Area Plans.
