Committee Structure Chart

The Committee System

Full council appoints committees (usually smaller groups of Councillors) to concentrate on specific functions of the Council and to make recommendations or decisions on its behalf. Some committees are advisory and make recommendations to full council. There are also executive committees where the full council delegates certain decisions to the committee for example Planning and Development. Working groups can be set up for a short term purpose. They are not subject to the strict rules that apply to formal council meetings and do not need to be held in public.

Planning and Town Development Committee

The Planning & Town Development Committee Considers and provides a formal observation on planning applications in Bollington including highway issues, licensing, tree preservations and signage. It recommends spending of S106 and CIL monies, and responds to consultations from Cheshire East Council and other statutory bodies.
