Statement of community involvement
We adopted our revised statement of community involvement (SCI) in July 2018. This document sets out how you can get involved in planning, including planning applications and the new local plan. The new local plan will guide development up to 2033 and deliver the spatial vision of the sustainable community strategy.
We have reviewed the content of the SCI in light of legislative changes. We have updated the neighbourhood planning section of the SCI to reflect the new legislative requirement for us, as a local planning authority, to set out our policies in relation to advising on neighbourhood plans and neighbourhood development orders.
