Statement of community involvement (SCI)

The Statement of Community Involvement was adopted 6 December 2007 and explains how the Council will involve the local community, stakeholders and statutory bodies in the preparation of the Local Development Framework and also the arrangements for involving the community when considering planning applications.

A Public Examination was held in June 2007, where the Inspector appointed by the Secretary of State considered representations. Following this the Inspector prepared a report, identifying a number of minor changes that are binding upon the Council to make. These changes have been incorporated into the adopted document.

The adoption statement sets out details of where the document, the Inspector's report and the adoption statement may be inspected, and the options for anyone who is aggrieved by the SCI.
