SODc: Planning Matters – have your say

The district council is updating its Statement of Community Involvement – the document that explains how the council will engage with people about planning matters. The previous Statement of Community Involvement was adopted in 2006 and a draft updated version has now been produced to reflect changes to the way in which people communicate.

People can view and comment on the draft Statement of Community Involvement by visiting survey.southandvale.gov.uk/s/SCIConsultation. The consultation is open from Wednesday 11 January to 5pm on Wednesday 22 February 2017. It is also available to view at public libraries throughout the district.

Once adopted, the council will comply with the updated Statement of Community Involvement in preparing new planning policy documents or when determining a planning application.
