One of the main principles behind the planning system is community involvement. We encourage the public, local organisations, businesses, and others with an interest in the area to take part and have a say in different aspects of planning.
The Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) sets out who we will consult on various aspects of planning, and what methods we will use.
We adopted a new SCI on 14 June 2016, following consultation on a draft document earlier in 2016. The new SCI supersedes the former (2007) SCI.
