Draft Statement of Community Involvement in Planning (SCI) 2022

The purpose of the SCI is to set out the consultation measures that the Council will undertake when consulting on planning policy documents and publicising planning applications.

An updated Statement of Community Involvement was approved by the Cabinet on 18 January 2023. The Cabinet report is available at Test Valley Borough Council (see Minute 406/Item 8) and the SCI document is available under Documents.

The SCI complements the Council’s broader commitment contained within its Corporate Plan with regards to promoting positive community engagement with local communities, businesses and interest groups. The preparation of an SCI is a legal requirement and once adopted, the Council needs to be consistent with its content.

The Council is currently finalising the new SCI document and it will be published soon.
