Council Committees

Please refer to each individual committee for the next committee meeting. The minutes of each committee meeting will be uploaded to our website once they have been approved and signed by the chairman of the committee.

Full Council

The Full Council committee meets once a month to ratify recommendations made by the individual committees and also authorise payments of over £10,000.

Planning Committee

The Committee meets every 2 weeks and reports to the Full Council. The Committee is responsible to the Parish Council for responding to planning applications and licensing applications, responding to appeals and consultation documents involving planning and transport. It also responds to consultation documents involving public rights of way.

Please note that Hertsmere Borough Council is the Local Planning Authority for this area. It is therefore the decision maker in the planning process and will make the decision to grant or refuse an application. It is very important that, if you have comments to make about an application, you send the comments (objection or support) by email or letter to the case officer at Hertsmere Borough Council so that they may be considered when assessing the application.

Please click on the following link for more detailed information about commenting on applications.
