Statement of Community Involvement

The 'statement of community involvement' (SCI) sets out how planning services intend to involve the local community in planning issues, including:

  • who will be consulted
  • when involvement should take place
  • which methods will be used.

Its purpose is to ensure active and continuous community participation in the planning process, whilst also making sure that the best decisions are made.

Epsom and Ewell Borough Council's most recent SCI was adopted at the 14 November 2019 Licensing and Planning Policy Committee


We are currently consulting on a draft Statement of Community Involvement 2022. 

Following consultation, the Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) 2022 will be amended as necessary and adopted by the Councils Licencing and Planning Policy Committee. Once adopted, the SCI 2022 will supersede the current version of the SCI detailed above.
