Community Involvement (SCI)

SCI cover 2013

The council has produced an up-to-date Statement of Community Involvement. Community involvement is an important part of the process of considering planning applications and other types of consent and preparing local plans and other planning policy documents.

 

 

  • It helps to establish agreement about future development in the borough.
  • It allows communities to influence planning decisions that shape the local area.
  • It enables those that may be affected by a proposed development or plan to express their views before decisions are made. 

 

The Statement of Community Involvement 2013 informs local communities of how and when they can get involved in the planning process. The updated document also takes account of simplified publicity and consultation procedures for local plans, new types of documents that the council must consult on and the neighbourhood planning process. It was adopted by the council’s Executive on 10th July 2013.
