Decision details

Statement of Community Involvement

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


Consideration was given to a report of the Planning Portfolio Holder which set out the consultation measures that the Council will undertake when consulting on planning policy documents and publicising planning applications.


The Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) complements the Council’s broader commitment contained within its Corporate Plan with regards to promoting positive community engagement with local communities, businesses and interest groups. The preparation of an SCI is a legal requirement and once adopted, the Council needs to be consistent with its content.


Having considered the options and for the reasons set out in the report, Cabinet agreed to the following:



1.  That the draft Statement of Community Involvement in Planning (2022), attached at Annex 1 to the report, be published for public consultation.

2.  That the Head of Planning Policy and Economic Development, in consultation with the Planning Portfolio Holder, be authorised to make changes of a minor nature.
