How are the community involved during the plan and decision making process?

The Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) explains how we involve the community on planning matters including the preparation of the next Local Plan and on planning applications.

The Council is currently consulting on a draft Statement of Community Involvement (SCI). This document will replace the adopted SCI (2015) and the Addendum SCI (2020). It updates these documents to reflects changes in how the Council works and in national policy and legislation.
