|Statement of Community Involvement (SCI)|
The draft Statement of Community Involvement sets out how we could engage with the community as we create planning documents and determine planning applications. Consultation ends 5pm Monday 30 November 2020. Currently, there are two separate SCIs which cover the former Suffolk Coastal District Council and former Waveney District Council areas.
In light of requests for an extension to the consultation period, it has been agreed that responses will be accepted up until 5pm on 07 December 2020.
The Statement of Community Involvement sets out how and when people can have their say on planning policies and planning applications.
Temporary suspension of elements of the Statement of Community Involvement due to social distancing
In light of current social distancing restrictions, as the result of Covid-19, it is not possible to fulfil certain requirements of the Statement of Community Involvement. Elements of the Statement of Community Involvement have therefore been temporarily suspended. Further detail can be found on our Covid-19 Planning and Building Control updates page.
The local development scheme sets out the timetable for local plan preparation and other planning policy documents.
