Planning and Development Committee

Planning Applications submitted for properties in Didcot are normally discussed in the Planning & Development Committee Meeting which meets every 3 weeks. Details of the meetings are shown in the Council Calendar and the Agenda for the forthcoming meeting is published at least 3 days prior to the meeting. Should you wish to attend the Committee meeting, please contact

Whilst the Town Council considers and comments on all applications affecting the parish, the controlling authority for most applications is South Oxfordshire District Council who can choose to take on board or ignore our comments.

Oxfordshire County Council conducts consultations on planning relating to highways and schools, among other matters. To search, review or respond to a County Council consultation, click here.
