Have your say on how we consult on planning issues

Our Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) aims to show you how and when you can become involved in the planning system and what to expect from us when you do. We want your views on our updated SCI to ensure that we are consulting effectively.


Our SCI describes how we will involve communities, businesses and organisations in the preparation of the County Durham Plan (Local Plan) and on planning application decisions. It also sets out our advice on how town and parish councils and Neighbourhood Forums should seek to involve and consult on the preparation of Neighbourhood Plans. 

What are we doing?

Our current SCI was created in 2012 and since them there have been many changes to the planning system and to the way we consult.

We now need to refresh the document and are consulting you on the updates.
