Draft Statement of Community Involvement

We want to hear your views on what we can do to get you involved in planning.

Planning helps to shape the places people live, work and relax, by guiding development to appropriate locations, protecting important assets, ensuring development is of a high quality and ensuring that adequate infrastructure is available to meet its needs.

Planning affects everyone and we want our community to be at the heart of the decisions we make in relation to new development and our vision for the town.

Our draft Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) sets out the statutory requirements for consultation and identifies other ways in which we think we can involve people. We really want to understand your views and if you have ideas and suggestions on how we can work together more effectively in the future to ensure planning really does reflect the views of our community.

Formal comments on the SCI must be made in writing. The easiest way to send us your views is via our online consultation portal. You can also email us at planningpolicy@stevenage.gov.uk, or send us a letter to Planning Policy, Stevenage Borough Council, Daneshill House, Danestrete, Stevenage, Herts SG1 1HN

Copies are also available to view at the Borough Council Offices in Danestrete, Stevenage Central Library, Southgate and the Old Town Library, High Street.

If you have any questions, or would like to make alternative arrangements to view the consultation document, please contact the Planning Policy team directly on 01438 242865 or email planningpolicy@stevenage.gov.uk.

The deadline for responses is 11.59am on 12 September 2018.
