Statement of Community Involvement

What is the Statement of Community Involvement?

The Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) sets out how we intend to engage with communities when developing and reviewing planning documents. The 2014 SCI revised the previous statement to reflect our current consultation practice and changes to regulations and legislation since 2006.

The previous version of the SCI was subject to public consultation, submission to the Secretary of State and independent examination by an inspector. The 2006 Statement of Community Involvement was adopted by the council in April 2006 with an accompanying Adoption Statement.

You can view responses to Planning Policy consultations held since 2010 using our planning policy consultation viewer.
