Community engagement with local development

The council is required to produce a Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) and keep it up-to-date. The SCI sets out:

  • how the council will consult and engage with the community during the preparation, production and implementation of local plans and supplementary planning documents; and
  • how it will consult the community and stakeholders on planning applications and related development management processes. 

Cheltenham's first SCI was adopted in October 2006.  A revised SCI was adopted in July 2014.
