3. Statement of community involvement
The Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) sets out our approach to promoting community and stakeholder consultation and involvement in respect to:
- How we produce future planning policy and engage with stakeholders.
- How we notify individuals and organisations that planning applications have been submitted and how we encourage developers to undertake consultation.
The Council is currently consulting on the new Statement of Community Involvement (SCI). This is the document which sets out how, where and when we will consult on planning matters such as Policy documents, planning applications and Neighbourhood Plans.
The SCI is available for comment from Tuesday 3 July to Wednesday 15 August 2018. All comments will be considered by the Council and will inform subsequent versions of the document.
Any comments should be marked ‘SCI’ and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or posted to Planning Policy Team, East Devon District Council, Knowle, Sidmouth, EX10 8HL
