Statement of community involvement

The Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) 2019 was adopted at the Planning Policy and Regeneration Strategy committee on the 26th June 2019. It sets out how we will involve and ensure engagement with the community in preparing its Local Plan Part 2, other planning policy documents and in processing planning applications.

It replaces the previous SCI which was adopted in 2016. Since then there have been a number of changes to the planning system and legislation, in addition, technological advances including the increased use and availability of electronic communications has changed the way public consultation is carried out. These changes have been reflected and are incorporated into the new drafted SCI.
