5. Statement of community involvement

The Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 requires each local planning authority to prepare a Statement of Community Involvement. It was adopted December 2005.

Our Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) explains how you can get involved in the preparation of the new development plan for the city (the Local Development Framework) for the period up to 2016 and beyond and how they will be consulted on planning applications.

We adopted our SCI on the 13 December 2005 following extensive public consultations and examination by a Planning Inspector. The inspectors report, details of the consultation and the adopted SCI can be downloaded below:
