Generally planning applications, planning enforcement and building standards decisions are made by the Council's Planning Board. Members of the public can attend the Planning Board meetings which take place on a Tuesday evening every six weeks. You can find out when the meetings take place in the Council Committee Diary.
Scheme of Delegation
Not all applications are heard at the Planning Board as, like most councils, East Dunbartonshire operates a Scheme of Delegation. A Scheme of Delegation means that planning officers can make a decision on a planning application without the need to involve the Planning Board.
If a planning application is a major development, with a number of objections, the Planning Board may hold a Planning Hearing which means that the application will be discussed and considered by the Planning Board and the Director of Development and Regeneration.
Policy matters are considered at the Place, Neighbourhood and Corporate Assets Committee.
