Community involvement in planning – have your say
Published: Wednesday 31st October 18
The council would like to hear the views of local people on its draft Statement of Community Involvement (SCI).
The SCI sets out how members of the public, businesses and local groups can get involved in local and neighbourhood planning, the planning application decision-making process and how the council will consult with them.
The SCI was last reviewed in 2012. The main changes in the new draft SCI are to acknowledge the wider role of online communication and consultation and the growth of neighbourhood planning.
Chairman of the council’s planning committee Cllr Will Sweet said: “Along with every other authority we have a statutory duty to produce an SCI and we want to ensure ours is consistent, transparent and enables the public to effectively engage with the planning service.”
The consultation continues until December 11.
