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.
The current SCI was adopted on 28 January 2015 and is available to read below.
We are currently consulting on a new SCI.
A new SCI (2020) has been prepared. This is currently available for public consultation from Tuesday 7 July until Sunday 18 October and we are keen to hear from local residents and organisations. More information about how to have your say can be found on our consultation page.
If you would like to sign up to our consultation database to be kept up do date with progress on the SCI, consultations and key updates from South Gloucestershire Council email: firstname.lastname@example.org
