Wiltshire Local Plan Statement of Community Involvement

Notice is given that we have published a revised and updated Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) on 20 April 2015 for consultation. This SCI has taken into account the changes to national legislation and regulation and will replace the February 2010 version. The SCI provides the community with clarity on the levels of involvement that they should expect in planning processes, and explains in detail our policy for engaging the community in the preparation of the Wiltshire Local Plan and in the consideration of planning applications. The principles in the SCI will also guide consultation on the Local Transport Plan (LTP) and Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL).

Consultation on the Update of the SCI

We undertook a consultation for six weeks from 20 April designed to seek representations on the updated SCI.

The period for submitting representations relating to the updated Statement of Community began at 9am Monday 20 April 2015 and lasted for six weeks, closing at 5pm on Tuesday 2 June 2015.
