If you want to post your response, please send it to Stratford-on- Avon District Council, Planning Policy Section, Elizabeth House, Church Street, Stratford-upon-Avon, CV37 6HX.Stratford-on-Avon District Council is updating its Statement of Community Involvement (SCI), to reflect changes in national planning legislation and remove references to COVID restrictions.

Planning decisions affect land and buildings, so it is important that local communities, businesses, and other interested parties have opportunity to engage in the processes for plan-making and development management decision-making. A SCI identifies how and when they can be involved.

The SCI sets out how Stratford-on-Avon District Council as the Local Planning Authority will engage stakeholders in the following planning documents and applications:

  • Development Plan Documents;
  • Supplementary Planning Documents;
  • Neighbourhood Plans;
  • Community Infrastructure Levy;
  • Planning Applications; and
  • Permission in Principle.

This SCI is a Local Development Document and once adopted will supersede Stratford District Council's previously adopted SCI (October 2020) - Statement of Community Involvement | Stratford-on-Avon District Council.
