About the SCI
The current SCI was adopted in December 2019, planning legislation states that it must be reviewed every five years from its date of adoption. It is considered that amendments to the 2019 SCI are required to reflect the following:

- to promote the new and increasingly standard digital communications within planning
- to highlight the council's new Inclusive Communities Framework
The SCI will be published for consultation on 20th November 2023 for a period of six weeks until 2nd January 2024. Details on when and how to make comments are outlined below. Following the close of the consultation period, we will consider your comments to help inform any final modifications to the SCI prior to its formal adoption.
