Featured consultation


Draft revised Statement of Community Involvement (SCI)

The Statement of Community Involvement (for planning matters) (SCI) sets out how and when stakeholders will be involved in planning policy preparation and consulted on planning applications. The SCI sets out the minimum measures the council will undertake – we can always do additional measures. You can comment on our proposed revised SCI - the consultation opens on Friday 27 February.
