Statement of community involvement

The Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) sets out how we involve the residents, businesses and others when we look at local development.  The SCI shows that we will operate planning in an open, transparent, accessible and inclusive way.  Above all, the purpose of the SCI is to bring a sense of ownership locally by actively involving people in decision making.

The Council's Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) was approved on 20 November 2019.

We consulted on our draft SCI between 19 July and 30 September 2019.  Comments received were taken to our Executive Committee on 20 November 2019.  This Committee agreed a small number of minor changes.

Paper copies of the document are available to view in the reception of the Council offices at Deane House, Belvedere Road, Taunton TA1 1HE and West Somerset House, Killick Way, Williton TA4 4QA.
