Statement of Community Involvement

The County Durham Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) explains how we will involve you in the planning process.


We have reviewed and updated our Statement of Community Involvement in light on Covid-19 to ensure that plan-making and public consultation can continue in an effective way.

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.
