Statement of Community Involvement

The Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) is a ‘code of practice’. It describes how and when we intend to involve local communities in planning for the future of the borough through:

  • the preparation of the Local Plan and other planning policy documents; and
  • the determination of planning applications

We are reviewing our SCI to take into account the changes in legislation and policy since we adopted the current SCI in 2006. The consultation is open until 20 March 2017. To find out more and have your say, please visit our Statement of Community Involvement consultation page.
