Consultation on the Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) for Gloucestershire – 2nd Review

The Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) for Gloucestershire is a statutory planning document that sets out the consultation and engagement methods used by the County Council in preparing plans and determining planning applications. It explains who, when and how residents, interest groups, organisations, businesses and other representatives will be involved.

The County Council has carried out a 2nd review of the current adopted SCI for Gloucestershire. This has resulted in the preparation of draft revised SCI document. A consultation on the draft revised SCI document is happening between 9am Monday 7th October and 5pm Friday 6th December 2019.
