Statement of community involvement

The Statement of Community Involvement explains how we will engage with people and organisations when preparing Local Plans and Supplementary Planning Documents, considering planning applications, working with communities on Neighbourhood Plans, and updating the Community Infrastructure Levy.

We have prepared a new Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) to reflect changes in planning legislation and to ensure we are engaging communities effectively. The SCI was adopted on 22 November 2017 and is available to view and download here:

This sets out temporary consultation arrangements as a result of the Covid-19 Pandemic. It is relevant for the public consultation on the emerging Local Plan - Publication Draft, proposed in October to December 2020

Consultation on the Draft SCI was carried out from Thursday 22 June to Wednesday 2 August 2017. A Statement of Consultation has been published setting out how we carried out the consultations and the Council’s response to comments made.
