Statement of Community Involvement for South Norfolk


The Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) outlines how we engage and consult with South Norfolk’s communities and other stakeholders on planning issues. This includes consultations relating to the documents that make up the Local Plan and consultations dealing with planning applications. We must comply with the SCI in preparing any Local Plan document or when determining a planning application. The SCI also details how the council expects developers with significant development proposals to engage with communities prior to an application being made.

The SCI was adopted in 2017 and has been reviewed and updated in 2021/2022 in order to comply with legislation.  View the South Norfolk Statement of Community Involvement May 2017 (Amended 2022)

The Council has also produced a temporary update to provide details on how the COVID 19 pandemic has and continues to affect the Council’s consultation activity as it relates to planning. View the C19 Temporary Update (April 2022).
