Draft Revised Statement of Community Involvement

Comments are being sought on the draft Revised Statement of Community Involvement. The preparation of a Statement of Community Involvement is a requirement of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 (as amended). The Localism Act 2011 re-emphasises the importance of enabling communities to contribute towards shaping the places where they live.

The SCI provides a framework for future consultation and community engagement but it is intended to be a flexible approach to all future consultation. Certain requirements for consultation on plan-making and planning applications are set out in legislation. The SCI seeks to address and expand upon these provisions where appropriate and within the available resources.

The consultation on the draft Revised Statements of Community Involvement (SCI) will run for six weeks from 9:00am Monday 30 October 2017 to 5:00pm Monday 11 December 2017.
