Our Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) sets out how we'll involve communities and stakeholders in preparing the local plan and considering planning applications.

The SCI was adopted in 2006 and prepared under previous planning regulations.  Since then there have been major changes to the planning system and it was revised after consultations in 2013 and approved in March 2014. It is now formal council policy.

You can view the SCI and a schedule of comments received during the consultation.

The council has updated its Engagement Strategy, which sets out the main stages of Local Plan preparation, the timescales, and the opportunities for you to get involved.
