Statement of Community Involvement Review - Consultation 2018

Closed 28 Aug 2018

Opened 25 Jun 2018


The purpose of the SCI is to set out how the Council will involve the community, businesses, key organisations and others in preparing its Local Plans, other important planning documents and in processing planning applications.

The current SCI was adopted in 2015 and in view of the legislative changes that have taken place since, it needs to be reviewed. This revised SCI seeks to update the District Council’s existing SCI and provide a framework that is more up to date.

The Council is seeking your view on the contents of the draft SCI. This can be seen in the document below which shows as tracked changes all the additions/amendments/deletions to the 2015 version of the SCI that we are proposing.

Comments can be submitted by anyone with an interest in the document. The Council will carefully consider the nature of the comments and they will be used to inform the preparation of the final document. This will be presented and considered by Full Council for adoption as there is no longer a requirement for SCIs to be independently examined.
