Statement of Community Involvement Consultation

Statement of Community Involvement Addendums open for public consultation for six weeks

What is a Statement of Community Involvement?
A Statement of Community Involvement is a document that sets out how local residents and other interested parties can expect to be consulted and engaged in the planning process. The Council’s existing Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) was adopted in 2016 and can be viewed by clicking the relevant link under Related Content.
