Statement of Community Involvement 2019

2 September - 18 October 2019

All Local Planning Authorities are required to prepare a statement for how they will involve interested residents, groups, organisations, businesses, other representatives and individuals in the planning process. The Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) describes how it will involve those with an interest in development in the area, including the preparation and review of the Local Plan and Supplementary Planning Documents, Neighbourhood Plans/Orders, Community Infrastructure Levy and the consideration of planning applications.

We would like to hear your views on the new draft SCI. You can read the draft SCI by downloading the document below or alternatively paper copies are available at the Town Hall and all libraries within the borough during normal opening hours.




Please share your views on our new Statement of Community Involvement.
