Planning & Environment Committee Meetings

The Parish Council delegates the consideration of planning applications to its Planning & Environment Committee (which also monitors local environmental threats and problems). Members of the public are invited to attend the Committee’s meetings and make representations.

Planning Meetings take place on Mondays (unless otherwise stated below) at 7.30pm in the Lovelace Room, East Horsley Village Hall, Agendas and Minutes will be posted on the website and on Council noticeboards.
