North East Planning Committee

Planning Committees

 

There shall be three Planning Committees for the North East, Central and West parts of Fife.  Their boundaries shall be those of North East Fife Area; Levenmouth, Kirkcaldy and Glenrothes Areas; and Cowdenbeath, Dunfermline and South West Fife Areas respectively.

 

The Chair of North East Fife Area Committee shall be the Chair of North East Planning Committee.  The Chairs of the remaining Area Committees shall be members of the Planning Committee for their Area and one of them shall be the Chair of the Planning Committee.  The Committees shall nominate their own Vice-Chairs if required.

 

The terms of reference and functions of the Planning Committees are to deal, in respect of their geographical extent, with the following matters:-

 

  • considering all planning applications (including the holding of pre-determination hearings) which are to be determined by the full Council;
  • determining all planning and other development applications which can be determined by a committee;
  • responding on behalf of the Council to all planning and other development applications of whatever nature lodged with other planning authorities which have an impact on Fife;
  • planning enforcement matters, reports and the serving of notices insofar as not delegated;

 

Where any application has an impact beyond the geographical boundary of a single Planning Committee, the Proper Officer shall determine (in consultation with the Head of Development Services and the relevant Chair(s)), which committee should determine the application.  Normally, this will be the committee within which all or the majority of an application site is located.  Provision shall be made, as necessary, for the views of other committees to be sought.
