Statement of Community Involvement
Planning decisions can have a fundamental impact on our quality of life.
Planning decisions range from householder extensions through to the regeneration of the town centre.
A Statement of Community Involvement has been prepared to help you have your say; it sets out how the Council will involve you in the preparation, alteration and review of local planning policies and planning applications.
We will involve you by:
- providing information such as leaflets and via our website;
- consulting you through surveys; and
- enabling you to participate in activities such as through workshops.
We will involve you in planning applications using our website, newspapers and on-site notices. We will also send letters to neighbours and use public displays, public meetings and press releases for major applications.
The Statement of Community Involvement was adopted by the Borough Council on 29 May 2012.
