The role of Regulatory Committees.
Regulatory committees are committees that we have to have by law.
There are two Development Control Committees that regulate land use and new building in Bristol. They decide major or controversial planning applications. Applications are referred to the committee by senior council officers and ward councillors.
The Development Control Committees in Bristol are:
Public Rights of Way and Greens Committee
The Public Rights of Way and Greens Committee is responsible for the registration and protection of common land and town and village greens and granting permission and licences for work or changes to public rights of way and greens.
Public Safety and Protection Committee and Licensing Committee
Public Safety and Protection Committee and Licensing Committee carry out the council's licensing responsibilities.
