Statement of Community Involvement
The Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) explains how everyone can be involved in the preparation of new planning policy documents and in consultation on planning applications.
The council adopted its first SCI in May 2008. Since then a number of changes have been made to both the legislative framework within which the SCI operates and internal procedures within the council. These changes have made it necessary for us to update our SCI every 5 years.
The current SCI was adopted on 11 March 2021.
The schedule of changes and officers responses was prepared as part of the SCI consultation.
