7. The Final Decision

The planning committee has a number of options when it makes its decision. It can:

  • Approve the application with a certain number of conditions which will be set out in the Decision Notice. These conditions can relate to start date, working hours, planning gain deals etc. These are legally enforceable.
  • Defer the application to a future committee date if the committee feels the need for more information                                             
  • Refuse the application with suitable reasons for refusal. In approving or refusing a planning application, a local authority must provide a reasoned justification for their decision to the applicant and the public.
