Planning and Highways Committee

Overview

The members of the Planning & Highways Committee are all councillors who represent the various wards of the borough of Blackburn With Darwen.

The committee meets every month and determines planning applications for certain major developments and others where objections have been received (under the Chair Referral, or Member referral process). See the Scheme of delegation to Planning & Highways Committee in the Council constitution for further information.

In all cases the committee will visit the site where the development is proposed prior to considering the application. These visits are for the members of the committee only assisted by the Planning Manager, and no representations can be made to the members on the visit.
