Consultation on the Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) 2018

The Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) is a document that explains to the public how the local authority will involve the community in local plan preparation and planning decisions. This document requires regular review to ensure it is up to date. After carrying out a review and due to recent changes to planning regulation, the document was redrafted.


A public consultation on the draft document ran from 5 October 2018 until 2 November 2018.

Thank you to those who submitted comments to the consultation.

All comments received have been considered and where relevant changes have been made to the final Statement of Community Involvement. The Council's response to representations are set out in full in the consultation statement.

The Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) was adopted at an Individual Cabinet Member Decision Making meeting held on the 29 November 2018.  Please see the agenda and minutes for the meeting.

The adoption statement and final SCI is also available to view in the consultation library.

If you have any further queries, please contact our planning policy team on 01372 474474.
