Statement of Community Involvement update

Purpose of the Report: This report sets out the draft updated Statement of Community Involvement, and asks members to approve it for consultation. This will replace the existing Statement of Community Involvement (adopted December 2007) and the 2020 update (which was produced as an update due to Covid regulations).

The Statement of Community Involvement sets out the Council’s consultation methodology for planning policy documents, including the Local Plan (and associated documents), neighbourhood plans and the Development Management process for planning applications. The preparation of a Statement of Community Involvement is a statutory requirement under national planning policy.

The Executive will be asked to agree the draft updated Statement of Community Involvement for citywide public consultation.
