Our Planning Committee comprise 15 members and have delegated power to determine all planning applications relating to 'county matters' ie minerals and waste developments together with applications for development to be carried out by the county council, in Staffordshire. Over recent years there have been many changes in the planning field and the Committee also undertake regular training sessions and site visits to give them the necessary knowledge and expertise to be able to carry out their functions in a professional and efficient manner.

Planning Committee meetings

The agenda (reports and minutes of the previous meeting) is published on the Wednesday in the week prior to the Planning Committee meeting. Previous agendas dating back to 2005 are also available.

The meetings are normally held in County Buildings, Martin Street, Stafford County Buildings location map (292 KB). However, due to the coronavirus we are holding virtual meetings from August 2020.
