Statement of Community Involvement Update 2014

SCI July 2014 cover
We are required to have in place a Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) which explains how the District Council will engage with local communities and businesses in relation to planning matters. The current SCI was adopted in 2007 and is in need of a ‘refresh’ to ensure it remains fit for purpose.


An updated SCI has therefore been prepared and is available to download in PDF format below. The updated SCI takes account of changes to national policy, increased use of electronic communication including social media and the duty to co-operate. 

We would welcome your views on the SCI update before it is finalised and adopted later in the year.

You can register your comments by sending them to the planning policy team, using the contact details below.

The consultation closes at 5pm on 19th September 2014.
