What is it?
The Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) provides clarity on the levels of involvement that they should expect in planning processes. The SCI explains in detail Wiltshire Council's policy for engaging the community in the preparation of Wiltshire's planning policy documents and in the consideration of planning applications. The principles in the SCI will also guide consultation on the Local Transport Plan (LTP) and the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL).
Committed to involving the community
Within the SCI it outlines how Wiltshire Council is committed to using new and innovative ways of involving the community in the planning system. Wiltshire Council will use a combination of methods, such as public exhibitions and meetings and online consultations. Further details of the methods Wiltshire Council will use are provided in appendix 1 of the SCI. Wiltshire Council wants to ensure that everyone with an interest in planning understands how they can contribute to, and influence, the planning decision-making process.
Wiltshire Council's commitment is to provide opportunities for you to influence planning decisions that affect you or your community directly.
More information on this can be found within the SCI.
