The Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) was adopted on 3rd December 2013.


Statement of Community Involvement

It sets out how the council will involve the community in plan-making and when considering planning applications. In addition to setting out our own publicity and consultation procedures, the SCI also outlines what we expect applicants to do before they submit a planning application.

The first SCI was adopted in January 2007 since when a number of changes have been made to the planning system. Work was undertaken to amend the document and a Draft SCI was subject to public consultation from 12 November 2012 - 31 January 2013. Following the public consultation, further amendments were made and the SCI was adopted on 3rd December 2013.
