Statement of Community Involvement

Closes 8 Apr 2020

Opened 16 Jan 2020


The Statement of Community Involvement explains how you can get involved in planning matters.

Its key purpose is to:

  • Give details about the opportunities you have to help make plans, policies and decisions that can affect your community and where you live
  • Show how we are working to put people at the centre of the engagement process and build strong relationships
  • Make things simpler and make sure people have a better experience when getting involved in planning matters
  • Explain how better engagement and the right opportunities can create more partnerships in planning
  • Outline our commitment to you and consider how we can deliver the values in the New Approach to Community Engagement

Please find all of the documents you need for this consultation at the end of this page.

Why We Are Consulting

We want to find out how we can improve our engagement with you in plan-making, policies and decisions.

We will do this by consulting on:

  • How we are delivering on our key values in the new approach to community engagement
  • The ways you would like us to engage with you 

We would like to hear from people from a range of backgrounds and those that have not previously been involved in planning consultations  

This includes:

  • Residents and people who spend time in the borough
  • Community and Voluntary Sector Organisations
  • Businesses
