The formation of the Environment & Planning Committee was agreed at Full Council on Thursday, 26 September 2019. The Environment & Planning Committee’s first meeting will be in January 2020 and its functions will be to address and, where appropriate, formulate policy for consideration by the Council and to discharge the Council’s functions relating to the local environment and infrastructure. It will also include identifying key environment and planning issues whilst taking into account the natural and built environment. Consideration will be given to issues in relation to local, regional plans or other planning, highway matters brought to the Town Council’s attention.
Members will make decisions on applications made to the Council by local organisations for funding from the Council’s new Carbon-Reduction and Mitigation Grant Scheme.
When considering planning applications, the Committee will seek to ensure compliance with the policies set out in the Godalming & Farncombe Neighbourhood Plan.
Agendas and minutes for all Committee meetings may be found here.
The Environment & Planning Committee meets approximately every three weeks.
