Statement of Community Involvement (SCI)
We have reviewed and updated our Statement of Community Involvement in light of Covid-19, to ensure that plan-making and public consultation can continue in an effective way. Please see the attached addendum.
Community engagement is a key part of the planning system as it ensures that the Council is able to listen to the views of stakeholders and the community to inform the outcome of planning decisions. This helps local people to become directly involved in place shaping in the district. The Council wishes to involve all sectors of the community in the planning process and is committed to maximising publicity of its planning documents.
The Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) has recently been updated and was adopted at the Council meeting on 23rd October 2019. This replaces the Council's SCI document of 2013.
