Statement of Community Involvement July 2015

Closed 31 Aug 2015

Opened 20 Jul 2015


The Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) sets out the ways in which the local community, businesses and key organisations can get involved in both the planning application process and key stages in the preparation of different parts of the local plan and other planning policy documents within Rochdale.


Why We Are Consulting

The SCI was adopted in October 2010.  We are now proposing an update to this document because over recent years there have been changes to the planning system and related legislation.  Preparing the new SCI will enable the changes to be incorporated within the document.  It has also provided an opportunity to review our consultation and engagement techniques, particularly the development of social media.

It is important in developing the final version of the SCI to have the view of key stakeholders and other interested parties.
