The majority of planning decisions are made by officers under delegated powers, however decisions on significant, complex or contentious planning applications are made by the Snowdonia National Park Authority’s Planning and Access Committee.
Planning and Access Committees are held on a ‘hybrid’ basis and members of the public may attend in person if they wish. Meetings will be webcast live and a recording will be available to watch back.
Attend the Planning and Access Committees in person
Planning and Access Committees are held at Plas Tan y Blwch, Maentwrog. You can attend the meeting in person by visiting Plas Tan y Bwlch on the date the meeting is held. Note that you will not be allowed to comment on an application or on any planning matters as an attendee. Should you wish to comment on a planning application, you will need to make a request to the Planning Committee.
Live webcasting and recordings
Planning and Access Committees are webcast live on the Snowdonia National Park Authority’s YouTube channel. A recording of any meetings held will be publicly available on the YouTube channel.
The committee has 18 members—six appointed members from the Welsh Government, nine from Gwynedd Council and three members from Conwy Council.
