Our statement of Community Involvement (SCI) sets out the methods to engage with the community and other stakeholders in the preparation and review of Local Plan documents and planning applications.

It is important that the local people are effectively involved in the development of towns and villages and to help shape the plans for development. For this reason, we are required to consult on planning proposals and plans.

We produce an SCI to outline how and when people will be involved in the planning process.
