Around 10% of planning applications are decided by a Planning Committee which is made up of elected Councillors and held monthly. If you would like to know more about the process email us for the scheme of delegation document.
West Oxfordshire is divided into two areas:
- Uplands planning committee which covers applications in the north of the district
- Lowlands planning committee which covers applications in the south of the district
You are welcome to attend any planning committee meeting and view the agenda papers which are available five working days before the meeting.

We encourage people to speak at the planning committee meetings. To be able to speak you must have:
- commented in writing on the application during the consultation period
