Consultation Draft Statement of Community Involvement 2018
Summary of consultation draft preparation and the consultation process
Every council has to publish a document called a Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) which lets residents and businesses in the area know how they can get involved in local planning issues.
This document is a consultation draft of our 2018 SCI. We are consulting on this draft because we would like you to tell us how we can improve the way the Council engages with you in its plan-making responsibilities and the way it consults on planning applications. Within this draft document we have set out ways in which we will let you know about new planning documents and planning applications and we have also set out the ways in which you can get involved in these processes. Please let us know which of these will work well for you and tell us about any other ideas you have as to how we can listen and work together better.
After the consultation period on the draft SCI has finished we will amend the document taking into account the comments received during this consultation period. The Council will then adopt the new SCI and consultation on planning policy documents and on planning applications will be carried out in line with the document's content. Currently the Council is looking to adopt the new SCI in the summer of 2018.
