Statement of Community Involvement

New Forest District Local Development Framework

The Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) sets out how we will consult and involve others in planning matters in New Forest District (outside the National Park). It covers both the preparation of local plans and planning guidance, and applications for planning permission.

On 21 November 2014, the Council published a revised Statement of Community Involvement for public consultation. Following consideration of the responses received, minor amendments were made and the SCI was formally adopted by the Council in April 2015.

It has been updated to reflect the provisions in the Neighbourhood Planning Act 2017 (Commencement No. 3) Regulations 2018.

This provides additional information in Section 7 in relation to Neighbourhood Planning/Neighbourhood Development Orders. It also reproduces the published Planning Protocol which defines the nature, scope and limitations of support that will be provided by New Forest District Council Planning Services to Town and Parish councils for the purposes of the preparation of a Neighbourhood Development Plan.
