The SCI explains how the public can become involved in the planning process.
The Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) is to be reviewed and early comments are welcomed. Please see the following information.
Please note that as of 1 November 2016 planning applications will be publicised by means of a site notice only.
After reviewing the 2007 document, the borough council have adopted the SCI in October 2013. See the downloads section.
