Manchester planning committee to return in full this month

The full planning committee is set to make a virtual return at the end of July

The committee will replace the emergency delegation process set out during the beginning of the Covid-19 outbreak. 

During the emergency delegation period only a small number of planning applications have been given the green light.The intention is to return to the full committee and ensure these decisions have full democratic oversight. 

Manchester City Councillor Mrs Stogia said: “I’m delighted to see that the full planning committee will be reinstalled.

“The use of the emergency powers was a temporary measure to ensure the planning process could continue during the Covid-19 outbreak to determine a small number of planning applications, in line with Government guidance. 

“I welcome the return of a full committee that will allow the full democratic process to take place.”
