Planning Decisions

Weymouth & Portland Borough Council is the official planning authority for Portland. However all planning applications for property on the Island come to the Town Council’s own Planning and Highways Advisory Committee for consideration. As well as being able to register an objection against schemes the Advisory Committee think are inappropriate for the Island on planning grounds, it is able to pass on other comments to the Borough which may be thought beneficial. These include suggestions on choice of materials or colours sympathetic to the surroundings.

Meetings of the Planning Committee are of course open to the public, who, if they give notice, may make representations to the Committee for or against particular schemes.
