Statement of Community Involvement

The Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) sets out the council's policy for involving the community in the preparation, alteration and review of planning policy documents and in deciding planning applications.

Our Statement of Community Involvement has been revised following public consultation between 9 February and 23 March 2016 and agreed by the council’s Executive at its meeting in July 2016.


The statement outlines the council’s standards for community participation in the planning process and identifies the ways we will achieve these standards.

You can view or download the revised (2016) statement and a summary of the submissions received during the consultation (Appendix A).

The SCI adopted in 2006 is also still available to view or download.
