Statement of community involvement
August 2020 update - Temporary amendments to the statement
In response to the current Covid 19 pandemic and in light of updated Government guidance, we have revised our Statement of Community Involvement.
Necessary temporary amendments have been made to enable public consultation on emerging planning policy documents such as the Local Plan to progress.
Temporary changes to the SCI were agreed at Cabinet on 5 August. Read the updated SCI.
The Council also carried out an Equalities Impact Assessment for the changes to the SCI. Read the Equalities Impact Assessment.
