The Statement of Community Involvement
The Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) acts as a guide and benchmark for all council services to use when we involve communities in our decision making processes.

- To ensure the SCI complies with all relevant national planning policy and guidance;
- To reflect the adoption of the District Plan; and
- To ensure that it complies with evolving best practice on community and stakeholder engagement.
Adopted Version of the SCI (2019)
Council adopted the revised SCI on the 27th March 2019.
