Consultation Notification – Somerset Statement of Community Involvement

The Somerset Councils are currently consulting on a new Statement of Community Involvement (SCI). Consultation is being undertaken between the 1st February and 16th March 2023.

With the formation of the new Somerset Unitary Council from April 2023 there is a need to produce a new single SCI for the whole of Somerset. The new SCI will set out how Somerset Council will involve our communities, organisations and other interested parties in the planning process. This includes when we prepare and consult on our future planning policy documents, including our Local Plan, and how we will involve people and organisations when we assess and decide on planning applications for new development. We are consulting on the draft SCI from 1st February to 16th March 2023.
