The Statement of Community Involvement acts as a guide and benchmark for all Council services to use when involving communities in our decision making processes. It was adopted by the Council October 2011.
The Statement is set out in three parts:
- How you can get involved
This is the Code of Practice which sets out six principles the Council will apply in engaging with our communities.
There are two appendices to this main document, which set out how the Statement will be put into practice in key areas. These appendices are:
- How we involve you in making planning decisions
This sets out how the Council will involve the community in making decisions on planning.
- How we involve you in Planning Performance Agreements
This sets out how the Council will work with applicants to engage residents on large and complex planning applications before they are submitted.
Key Contacts List
One of the initiatives of the Statement of Community Involvement is to maintain an up-to-date list of 'Key Contacts'. This is a list of organisations and groups that the Council will consider contacting for consultation on its Local Development Framework.
- List of Key Contacts
- Add your details to the Key Contacts list (organisations and groups only). This will be considered by Officers for inclusion.
- Amend your details held on the Key Contacts List.
Individuals can subscribe to the LDF e-mail alert to be kept in touch with progress on the Local Development Framework.
