Statement of community involvement
The Council has adopted a Statement of Community Involvement (SCI), which sets out policy for involving the community in the preparation, alteration and review of planning policy documents and in deciding planning applications.
The first SCI was adopted in 2007. Since this time, technological developments have provided an opportunity to review and improve the methods of communication used by the Council to engage with the local community. The Council consulted on a revised SCI in July/August 2012 and following this the new SCI was adopted by the Council in December 2012.
