Issue details

Adoption of Revised Statement of Community Involvement

The County Council is required to produce a Statement of Community Involvement and to ensure that it is reviewed at least every 5 years. The document sets out how we will consult when preparing our Minerals and Waste Local Plans and when determining planning applications. The current SCI was adopted in 2014, so a review is now due. Planning Committee will be advised of the emerging new SCI on 6 June, and thereafter it will be available for public consultation for a statutory period of 6 weeks. However, as a planning document, formal adoption must be resolved through Cabinet.
