Statement of Community Involvement

The Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) explains how we will involve the community in the preparation of local planning policy documents.

It also explains how we consult on planning applications, including the standards expected from developers with major proposals.

The current version of the SCI was adopted in 2014.

We have produced a revision which responds to new requirements to clarify how we support and assist local groups preparing neighbourhood plans.

The revised document was consulted on between Friday 11 January and Friday 22 February 2019 and will be published once the responses received have been reviewed and considered.
