The Planning Committee consists of nineteen councillors, who
deal with applications for planning permission in the Vale of
Glamorgan, including most mineral and waste facilities.
The Committee meets every month, other than August, at the Civic
Offices in Barry. Meetings usually start at 6.00pm. The public are
entitled to attend meetings of the Planning Committee to hear
proceedings only. Representation can be made in writing or directly
to any Councillor before the meeting. A list of Councillors currently
sitting on the Planning Committee can be viewed above or
inspected at the Dock Offices. The Conservation Area Advisory Group advises the
Planning Committee on design aspects of certain planning
applications in Conservation Areas.

Where an application is to be considered by the Planning
Committee, a written report is produced which is available for
inspection by the public (unless it is confidential). The
Committee reports are made available four working days before the
date of the meeting. Late representations may
be received after the report is written.
The latest Committee Reports and associated
documents can be viewed below.
You can view archived Committee Reports here. Paper copies of
reports are also available for inspection at the Scrutiny and

organisations/bodies with an interest in a particular application
are not placed at a disadvantage, the Authority will accept and
report observations received up until 12 pm on the day before
Committee. These comments are circulated in the form of a late
report to Committee members on the evening before Committee by
email and are presented in hard copy form at the actual
