The Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) explains how the Council will involve the community and other stakeholders in the preparation and revision of local development documents (i.e. the Local Plan and Supplementary Planning Documents SPDs) and how the community will be consulted on planning applications.
The current SCI was adopted on 14 July 2015. This replaced and updated the original SCI adopted in September 2007. To view the SCI please click on the link below or the link in the "downloads" menu on the right hand side of this page.
