Statement of Community Involvement

Statement of Community Involvement 

We want to involve more residents, businesses, community groups, and other stakeholders in planning matters. On 12 February 2020 the Council adopted a new Statement of Community Involvement (SCI). This document was consulted from 30 September to 11 November 2019. 

SCI sets out principles of engagement, consultation techniques and details of how residents and stakeholders can get involved in all aspects of planning. It seeks to make it quicker, easier and more accessible to have your say in the planning process.

The adopted SCI along with the consultation responses, including those received through the digital platform Built-ID, and an Equalities Impact Assessment can be found below.
