4. Statement of Community Involvement

The Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) sets out our approach to promoting community and stakeholder consultation and involvement in respect to:

  1. How we produce future planning policy and engage with stakeholders.
  2. How we notify individuals and organisations that planning applications have been submitted and how we encourage developers to undertake consultation.

The Statement of Community Involvement was adopted on 24 October 2018.  This is the document which sets out how, where and when we will consult on planning matters such as Policy documents, planning applications and Neighbourhood Plans.

The Council recently consulted on the draft Statement of Community Involvement (SCI).   

The SCI was available for comment from Tuesday 3 July to Wednesday 15 August 2018. The comments below were received in response to the consultation and will inform subsequent versions of the document.
