Statement of Community Involvement

The Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) sets the standard and approach we take to involve stakeholders and the community in consulting on planning matters.

This includes the handling of major planning applications. It is intended to 'signpost' opportunities for anyone who wishes to make a contribution to planning for our future.

Lewes Statement of Community Involvement

Lewes District Council adopted the Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) on 20 July 2020. The document sets out how and when the council will provide opportunities for the community to contribute to the planning process, including local plan preparation and the consideration of planning applications. It is split into four main sections as follows:

  • Overview of the planning system
  • Plan making
  • Neighbourhood planning
  • Development management
