Welcome to Planning Policy
Revised Statement of Community Involvement Consultation
Statement of Community Involvement (SCI)
The Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) sets out Ribble Valley Borough Council's commitment to involving all parts of the community in the preparation and revision of Local Development Documents and how the Council will consider planning applications. It sets out how and when the community can get involved in the various stages of the preparation of different types of planning policy documents and sets out the consultation delivery standards we will aim to achieve.
It also describes the various consultation stages each planning policy document will go through and the various methods that we will use to consult with the many groups and individuals who make up the local community. In addition it also makes clear all those other bodies, both national and regional, whose views need to be considered.
Ribble Valley Borough Council's first SCI was adopted in 2007. If you would like to view this document please contact the Forward Planning team on 01200 414570.
Between 26th May and 9th July 2010, a consultation took place on a revised version of Ribble Valley's original SCI. This revision took into account both changes in national planning guidance and our experience of recent consultations.
Following this consultation, a Summary of Representations recived was produced, which can be viewed here. The revised SCI was formally adopted on 1st December 2010.
