Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) (adopted March 2015)

The Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) sets out how and when the Council will involve the community and other interested people and organisations ('stakeholders') in the preparation of its planning policy documents, and also in the consideration of planning applications in Brighton & hove. The SCI was adopted by the Council on 12 March 2015. 

The SCI has been updated to reflect changes that have occurred in the Planning system since the last version was adopted in 2006. The document reflects the council commitment to effective consultation and follows the principles set out in the council’s Community Engagement Framework.

An up to date revised SCI provides clarity on how engagement will be undertaken with partners, communities and individuals.

The Council consulted on the updated draft revised Statement of Community Involvement SCI between 12 November 2014 and 16 January 2015. The results of the public consultation were taken into account in finalising the document and can be viewed in the council's 12 March 2015 committee report
