23/04/2021 - Continuation of Temporary Amendments to the Council’s Statement of Community Involvement
Resolved: (i) That the temporary revisions to the council’s adopted SCI, as set out in Annex A, be approved for a further period of 6 months maximum, to reflect the specific requirements arising from national guidance and procedures on dealing with the implications of coronavirus.
(ii) That authority be delegated to the Corporate Director of Economy & Place, in conjunction with the Executive Member for Economy & Strategic Planning, to take a decision to revert back to the pre-pandemic version of the SCI when the pandemic situation allows for suspended consultation methods to be lifted.
Reason: To ensure that consultation and engagement in the planning process remains effective at a time when restrictions have been placed on face to face social interactions to help combat the spread of coronavirus.
