Delegated powers for planning decisions
In relation to planning permission, delegated powers are used by Local Planning Authorities (LPA) to deal with planning applications. Delegated powers enable planning officers to determine applications themselves without needing a decision from the planning committee. The majority of, mainly minor, applications are dealt with in this way.
Designated officers consider the recommendations that are outlined in a delegated report by the case officer and a decision is agreed and issued.
Generally, applications that receive three or more objections are referred to the Planning committee.
