Planning Applications

The Town Council plays an active part in all local planning issues. It is probably the area of the Council's role that is best known to the community and which can be of the most importance. Planning applications are considered by the Council at Planning Committee Meetings. Click here to view meetings, agendas and minutes for the current year.

 


Planning Applications and Copyright

Bradford Metropolitan District Council provided Keighley Town Council the following permissions with regard to Planning Applications & Copyright (permission was granted on the 21 February 2017)

  • The relevant legislation is section 47 of the Copyright, designs and Patents Act 1988 (“the 1988 Act”) which covers two separate situations where material is open to public inspection because of a statutory requirement, or is on a statutory register, (as with planning applications).  The two situations are in respect of copying information to the councillors and copying information for the public.
  • The copying of factual information (e.g. details of the application) is allowed with the permission of the LPA, so long as the copies are not to be issued to the public.  This would therefore apply to the making and supply of copies of planning applications to local councillors (section 47(1) of the 1998 Act).
  • The copying or issuing to the public of copies of the planning application or making it publicly available in electronic format is allowed so long as it is done by or with the permission of the LPA and it is to enable it to be viewed at a more convenient time or place or assist the public in responding to an application (section 47(2) of the 1988 Act).

“THIS COPY HAS BEEN MADE BY OR WITH THE AUTHORITY OF BRADFORD METROPOLITAN DISTRICT COUNCIL TO MAKE THE PLAN OR DESIGN OPEN TO THE PUBLIC INSPECTION PERSUANT TO S47 OF THE COPYRIGHT, DESIGN AND PATENTS ACT 1988 UNLESS THAT ACT PROVIDES A RELEVENT EXCEPTION TO COPYRIGHT, THE COPY MUST NOT BE COPIED WITHOUT THE PRIOR PERMISSION OF THE COPYRIGHT OWNER”
