Under Section 70(2) of the Town & Country Planning Act 1990, all planning applications have to be determined in accordance with the Development Plan (the Development Plan for Carlisle is the Carlisle District Local Plan 2015-2030 and other policies) unless material considerations indicate otherwise.

An Officer Report to assist the Committee in determining the application accompanies all the applications that are considered by the Development Control Committee. The Report identifies the relevant development plan policies, supplementary planning documents, other planning policy guidance issued by the Government, describes the proposal and planning history of the site, summarises consultations, objections and representations and makes a recommendation based on planning policy and other material planning conditions.

The Development Control Committee may approve, refuse or defer consideration of the application for further information or a site visit.
