We have four Area Committees (North, South,
East and West), which work closely with their local communities,
allowing Planning and other issues to be decided at a local level.
Area Committees form part of our ambitious and nationally acclaimed
framework for Area Working.
Area Committees take decisions in public on
significant planning applications, invest in local projects,
discuss issues of interest and priority to the local area, and
enable residents to get involved in local decision-making.
Between April 2020 and July 2022, SSDC
meetings were held on-line and streamed to YouTube. Future meetings will now take place in person and
will continue to be streamed to YouTube where possible.
