Statement of Community Involvement Review - Consultation Draft

10 - Review of the SCI

10.1 The consultation procedures used by the Council detailed in this SCI will be kept under review and monitored to determine where procedures have proven unsuccessful or where revisions may be necessary to meet new circumstances. Some of this information will become apparent via the Statement of Consultation. In addition, we will assess each method of consultation we have used to see if it:

  • Gave you the information you needed
  • Gave us the type of feedback we needed
  • Actively encouraged more people to be involved
  • Involved different and appropriate types of people and organisations
  • Allowed participants the opportunity to have their views heard and recorded

10.2 The Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2017 require us to update the SCI every five years starting from the date of adoption.

10.3 The Government has recently published the Planning White Paper - 'Planning for the Future' which proposes significant changes to the planning system and how consultations are carried out. The next review of the SCI will reflect any changes to the planning system that have been brought into force.
