The Council adopted its Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) (PDF, 5MB) in Planning in November 2015.
The SCI seeks to ensure the active, meaningful and continued involvement of local communities and stakeholders in planning. It sets out how, when and who will be consulted throughout the preparation of the Local Plan and other planning documents prepared by the Council, as well as setting out how the community can respond to planning applications.
The Council also has a Planning Charter that can be viewed here (PDF, 254KB). It is aimed at customers accessing the Council's Development Management Service.
