Statement of Community Involvement

Statement of Community Involvement - adopted January 2010

What is the Statement of Community Involvement (SCI)?

The Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) provides information on how we will involve the community and other local and national stakeholders in the planning process. The SCI explains the process and methods for public involvement in the preparation and revision of the Local Development Framework (LDF) documents and in the determination of planning applications. Minimum requirements for public involvement in the planning process are already set out in various Planning Acts, Regulations and Orders, however the SCI sets out any additional methods and processes that we will use.
