Public hearings

Details of public hearings in relation to planning in London are published here.

In his role in making strategic planning decisions for London, the Mayor may occasionally take over an application for his own determination. He must then hold a public hearing before deciding whether or not to grant planning permission.

Public hearings are normally announced at least one week in advance. They are held in the Chamber at City Hall in the evening, unless otherwise advertised. The Chamber has a capacity of 250 people and is fully accessible. For information about accessing City Hall see location map and disabled access.
