Planning Committees

There shall be two Planning Committees for the North East, and Central and West parts of Fife. Their boundaries shall be those of North East Fife Area; and Levenmouth, Kirkcaldy, Glenrothes, Cowdenbeath, Dunfermline and South and West Fife Areas respectively.

The Convener of North East Fife Area Committee shall be the Convener of North East Planning Committee. The Conveners of the remaining Area Committees shall, if possible, be members of the Planning Committee for their Area. One of the Area Conveners shall normally be the Convener of the Central and West Planning Committee. Both Planning Committees shall nominate their own Vice-Conveners if required.

The terms of reference and functions of the Planning Committees are to deal, in respect of their geographical extent, with the following matters:-

  • considering all planning applications (including the holding of pre-determination hearings) which are to be determined by the full Council
  • determining all planning and other development applications which can be determined by a Committee
  • responding on behalf of the Council to all planning and other development applications of whatever nature lodged with other planning authorities which have an impact on Fife
  • planning enforcement matters, reports and the serving of notices insofar as not delegated

Where any application has an impact beyond the geographical boundary of a single Planning Committee, the Proper Officer shall determine (in consultation with the Executive Director (Enterprise and Environment) and the relevant Convener(s)), which Committee should determine the application. Normally, this will be the Committee within which all or the majority of an application site is located. Provision shall be made, as necessary, for the views of other Committees to be sought.
