Under Section 54A of the Town & Country Planning Act 1990, all planning applications have to be determined in accordance with the Development Plan (the Development Plan for Carlisle is the Cumbria and Lake District Joint Structure Plan and the Carlisle District Local Plan) unless material considerations indicate otherwise.

An Officer Report to assist the Committee in determining the application accompanies all the applications that are considered by the Development Control Committee. The Report identifies the relevant development plan policies, supplementary planning guidance, other planning policy guidance issued by the Government, describes the proposal and planning history of the site, summarises consultations, objections and representations and makes a recommendation based on planning policy and other material planning conditions.

Some Reports may not contain a recommendation as further information is awaited and expected to be available for the Committee. In these cases the officer will make a verbal recommendation at the Committee.

The Development Control Committee may approve, refuse or defer consideration of the application for further information or a site visit.

If you would like to view electronic versions of Committee Reports including officer's reports, they are available on the following link. The Development Control Schedule and Agenda will be available by midday 8 days before the meeting. The Development Control Minutes and Decision Schedule will be available 7 days after the meeting.
