We are committed to involving local communities and organisations in planning decisions.
Our Statement of Community Involvement sets out how and when we will involve local people in preparing, altering and reviewing our planning policies, plans and decisions.
The current statement was adopted on 18 September 2014 after a public consultation. In February 2016 we made a few minor changes to make the document more user-friendly. We did not consult again because these changes did not have any effect on the standards or policies.
