Subject: Your comments please: Statement of Community Involvement 2013 consultation

Statement of Community Involvement on County Council Planning Matters - Consultation Draft (January 2013)

The Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) sets out how people and organisations with an interest in the area can play a part in the preparation of minerals and waste plans and in the consideration of planning applications that are dealt with by the county council. We have prepared this with the intention of replacing the current SCI because planning legislation has changed recently and we need to reflect the latest legal consultation requirements.

The Statement of Community Involvement highlights:

  • how people will be consulted on planning applications for minerals, waste and county council development (such as schools);
  • how the council will involve communities and organisations the preparation and revision of minerals and waste local plans; and
  • who will be consulted on county planning matters.

We would like your comments on the draft Statement of Community Involvement. The document can be viewed online at: www.dorsetforyou.com/mwdf
