The Planning Committee meets when necessary to consider planning applications.
Six councillors sit on the Planning Committee with Bryn Davies in an advisory capacity with regards to the Neighbourhood Plan; Brading Town Council’s role is to inspect the planning applications made to the Isle of Wight Council, the statutory planning authority, and to recommend approval or objection. Brading Town Council itself is not the statutory planning authority, but our recommendations are given consideration by the planning officer at Isle of Wight Council.
Members of the public are entitled to speak at the Brading Town Council Planning meetings. They may speak in support of an application or in opposition to an application, but in both cases are limited to two minutes.
Brading Town Council has published Guidelines for Public Speaking at Meetings which outlines the correct procedure.
The Planning Committee is comprised of the following councillors:
Councillor Richard Hudspith
Councillor Richard Whiting (Chairman)
Councillor Julie Smith
Councillor Juliet Bristow (Deputy Chairwoman)
Councillor Steve Bonsey
Councillor Gerry Ramsden
You can find out if applications have been made in your area by following this link to Isle of Wight Council’s search page where you can also leave comments on the application.
