Statement of community involvement

We adopted the current statement (SCI) part 1 on 28 July 2016. We adopted part 2 on 1 August 2018.

About the SCI

The statement part 1 sets out how we will involve

  • local communities
  • businesses
  • important stakeholders

When preparing:

  • the local plan
  • future development plan documents (DPD’s)
  • supplementary planning documents (SPD’s)

Darlington Council adopted its first SCI in November 2005. We reviewed it in July 2010.

We carried out a second review following the introduction of the:

  • localism act 2011
  • national planning policy framework (NPPF)
  • amendments to the town and country planning (local development) (England) regulations in 2012

Part 1 supersedes the SCI where it relates to Local Plans. The rest of the SCI 2010 relating to development management, remains extant.
