Statement of Community Involvement May 2018

We are consulting on a draft revision to the Council’s Statement of Community Involvement (SCI)

The SCI sets out how, when and where we involve people and groups during the creation of the local plan and during the planning process.

The consultation will last for a period of six weeks, from Thursday 24th May until midnight Thursday 5th July 2018.

This draft revision amends our existing SCI which was adopted in 2016. The proposed changes are needed due to recent changes to planning legislation. In particular, the draft revision now sets out the our policies for giving advice or assistance in relation to Neighbourhood Planning such as Neighbourhood Plans.  The draft revision also contains an updated timetable for the production of the Local Plan. 

All new changes and amendments to the adopted SCI are shown in red with deletions struck through and your views are particularly sought on these changes. 

You can read and comment on draft revision to the SCI on the our consultation portal.

Alternatively, you can complete a comment form and email it to  or send it to:
