Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) for Gloucestershire
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.
All local planning authorities must keep their SCI’s up-to-date. A review should be carried out every five years. The current adopted SCI for Gloucestershire was a review of an original document that was completed in 2005. The review was adopted by the County Council in 2013.
Consultation on the Statement of Community Involvement for Gloucestershire | 2nd Review
The County Council has carried out a consultation into a 2nd review of the adopted SCI for Gloucestershire between Monday 7 October and Friday 6 December 2019. This has resulted in the preparation of a draft revised SCI document presented to Cabinet on 22nd April 2020. The proposed recommendation for Cabinet is for County Council to adopt the Statement of Community Involvement for Gloucestershire 2nd Review

What happens next?
The emerging revised SCI for Gloucestershire is to be considered by Cabinet in April 2020 and then Full Council shortly after in May 2020. If approved, the SCI for Gloucestershire 2nd Review will become adopted policy of the County Council and replace the previous 1st Review version that has been in place since 2013.
