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.

We are now consulting on a new Statement of Community Involvement for the recently formed Somerset West and Taunton Council.  You can comment on the document via our online Feedback Form which is available from between 9am Friday 19 July and 5pm Monday 30 September 2019.

Paper copies of the document will be 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.
