Department enhances opportunity for community involvement in the planning process
Published on Wed, 30 Mar 2016 by firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Department today published a Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) which sets out how the Department will effectively engage with the community in the delivery of its planning functions, improving access to, and increasing participation in, the planning process.
This SCI clearly sets out, in one document, the Department’s commitment to involving the community in each of its planning functions. It provides a more structured approach to community engagement, sets out the Department’s standards for consultation on planning matters, and promotes active and continuous participation in the planning process.
The SCI can be accessed at www.planningni.gov.uk/index/policy/departments-sci or inspected by appointment at Department of Environment, Planning Policy Division, Causeway Exchange, 1-7 Bedford Street, Belfast, BT2 7EG.
