The Planning Committee usually only consider Planning Application on the agenda but in some cases the committee may consider any further applications received from the Planning Authority at or before the start of the meeting due to deadlines set by Cornwall Council.

The period of time designated for public participation shall not exceed 20 minutes unless directed by the chairman of the meeting. A member of the public shall not speak for more than 3 minutes. Cornwall Council is the planning authority not Carn Brea Parish Council.

The policy of Carn Brea Parish Council is that the Planning Committee considers all planning applications referred to us for consultation. The decision of the meeting is submitted to Cornwall Council as the Parish Council's response.
