Committee details

Area West Committee

Purpose of committee

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.

 

Update from 6th May to 31st July 2021. 

SSDC have agreed to continue to hold on-line meetings during this period.  These meetings are open to the public and we will continue to stream them on YouTube.

 

At the Full Council meeting of 15th April, (see Agenda item 10) SSDC Councillors agreed to delegate decisions, including Executive and Quasi-Judicial decisions, that would have been taken by those meetings if the Local Authorities and Police and Crime Panels (Coronavirus) (Flexibility of Local Authority and Police and Crime Panel Meetings) (England and Wales) Regulations 2020 had continued in force to the Chief Executive (or the relevant Director in the Chief Executive’s absence) in consultation with those meetings and those members to whom the decision would otherwise have been delegated under Part 3 of the Constitution.

 

Agenda for South Somerset District Council on Thursday 15th April 2021, 6.30 pm

 

This allows Councillors to continue to meet on-line as informal consultative meetings and make a recommendation to the Chief Executive on the reports they consider. This arrangement has been agreed until 31 July 2021 in the anticipation that in-person meetings will resume without the need for social distancing.
