Causeway Coast and Glen’s Planning Committee is to resume its monthly meetings this month with its first virtual meeting to be held on 24th June.

While normal meetings of the committee have been suspended since the beginning of COVID-19 pandemic, processing of planning applications has continued in the intervening 2 month period with some 130 planning applications received and validated, the vast majority of which relating to residential development, as well as other more minor developments. Enforcement action has also been continuing with 12 enforcement actions and 1 temporary stop notice issued.

During the same period, a further 96 applications were progressed to decision under delegated authority.

The next meeting is planned to take place on 24th June via video conferencing technology as has already been done with other council meetings last month.

Councillor Kathleen McGurk, who is a member of the Planning Committee is keen to see the meetings resume. She said, “It is now more important than ever that we do all we can to help protect and safeguard our economy. In the Causeway Coast and Glens area the construction sector is a major employer and we have seen particularly high levels of development in the district over the past few years. It is therefore vital that the planning service continues to operate and provide the necessary decisions so that the economy can be supported. I must commend the planning staff who have worked tirelessly, even in these difficult circumstances, to continue to provide this important service for the public. The monthly meetings commencing again in June is a welcome development which will see further positive outcomes for the district, our residents and our economy.”
