Notes for Planning Committee members on determining applications


Members are reminded of their legal responsibilities when determining planning applications as set out in the planning practice guidance on the government website Gov.UK.


“Local authority members are involved in planning matters to represent the interests of the whole community and must maintain an open mind when considering planning applications. Where members take decisions on planning applications they must do so in accordance with the development plan unless material considerations indicate otherwise. Members must only take into account material planning considerations, which can include public views where they relate to relevant planning matters. Local opposition or support for a proposal is not in itself a ground for refusing or granting planning permission, unless it is founded upon valid material planning reasons.”


S70 (2) of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 and S38 (6) of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 states that planning decisions must be taken in accordance with the Council’s development plan unless there are material planning considerations that indicate otherwise.


Article 32 of the Town and Country Planning (Development Management Procedure) (England) Order 2015 provides that, subject to additional publicity requirements, a local planning authority may depart from development plan policy where material considerations indicate that the plan should not be followed.  


The development plan consists of the Teignbridge Local Plan and the Neighbourhood Plans.


The National Planning Policy Framework and National Planning Practice Guidance must also be taken into account.


S70 (2) of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 provides that a local planning authority must have regard to a local finance consideration as far as it is material.  A local finance consideration is defined as a grant or other financial assistance that has been, will or could be provided to a relevant authority by a Minister of the Crown Court (such as a New Homes Bonus payments) or sums that a relevant authority has, will or could receive, in payment of the Community Infrastructure Levy.   Whether or not a local finance consideration is material to a particular development will depend on whether it could help to make the development acceptable in planning terms.
