119 Planning Training for Policy and Resources Committee Members pdf icon PDF 61 KB


Mr Sam Bailey, Democratic and Administration Services Manager, presented a report outlining the training programme for the Committee. The reason a planning training programme was being presented for approval was so the Policy and Resources Committee were compliant with the requirements in the constitution in regard to Planning Training if it needed to meet to determine a planning application. The recommendation in the report was for the Committee to replicate the training programme agreed by Planning Committee, to ensure consistency of training across the two Committees.


In response to a question from a member of the Committee, Mr Bailey confirmed the Planning Committee had not agreed their training programme yet, but that it was due to be agreed at the Planning Committee meeting on the following evening.


The Committee felt it was important that, if the Planning Committee failed to agree its training programme, there was a provision in place to ensure that the Head of Planning and Development could ensure appropriate training was provided to the Policy and Resources Committee before it convened to exercise its function as the planning referrals body.




That the planning training programme for members of Policy and Resources Committee for 2018/19 replicates the mandatory training programme agreed by the Planning Committee.


Voting: Unanimous
