Statement of community involvement

The Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) sets out how, when and with whom the Council will consult at key stages in the plan making and development management process and how communities can become involved.

As the Council is reviewing the Local Plan process, we have also reviewed the parts of the SCI which relate to getting involved in preparing the Local Plan to make sure they match the latest regulations and are up to date with the latest ways of keeping in touch with our stakeholders.

The SCI sets out the minimum we will do – we often do much more than this.

The consultation for the Draft Statement of Community Involvement has now ended. Thank you for your comments, which will be considered prior to adopting the final statement.
