Statement of Community Involvement
The Statement of Community Involvement sets out how the council intends to involve all sectors of the community in the planning process. It relates to the preparation of planning policy and the determination of planning applications. It explains how and with whom the council will consult when carrying out its planning duties.
The current Statement of Community Involvement (PDF, 2.4MB) was adopted by the council in 2010.
