The Development Control Committee meets on the first Wednesday of every month except January. Its role is to consider planning applications and property control matters including planning enforcement.
You can find out how this Committee is involved in the planning process in our Planning advice for town and parish councils page.
The agenda and papers for the meetings are available to the public five working days prior to the meeting. They can be downloaded from the relevant meeting page or viewed at the Authority's offices in Kendal. The only exceptions are those agenda items which would infringe copyright or would not be dealt with in public for reasons of confidentiality.
We livestream and make a recording of each Committee meeting, apart from those agenda items which would infringe copyright or would not be dealt with in public for reasons of confidentiality.
