Chelmsford City Council

Committees and panels

Following the local election on 2 May 2019, the membership of these committees will change. The new committee members will be announced at Full Council on 22 May 2019 and we will publish the detail shortly afterwards.

In addition to the Cabinet and Full Council, we have a number of committees that each focus on a specific council function.

The committees consider issues in detail at scheduled meetings. They then make any decisions or recommendations to the Cabinet or Full Council.

You can find out about each committee, including the councillors on the committee, meeting agendas and meeting minutes.

  • considers and approves the preparation of the emerging Local Plan, including supporting documents and the evidence base
  • considers and approves site specific guidance and city improvement projects

It also considers and approves supplementary planning documents for which the Cabinet may not be responsible.
