Statement of Community Involvement

The Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) sets out how the council intends to involve the local community in planning issues, setting out:

  • who will be consulted
  • when involvement should take place
  • which methods will be used

Its purpose is to ensure active and continuous community participation in the planning process, whilst also making sure that the best decisions are made.

The council adopted its Statement of Community Involvement in March 2018 and a copy can be found at the bottom of the page.

The Council has consulted on a new draft SCI relating to planning matters, this is scheduled to be formally adopted in 2023.
