Statement of Community Involvement
The Statement of Community Involvement (March 2015) (PDF File, 793kb) explains how Newark and Sherwood District Council helps individuals, groups and communities take part in the planning system.
It maps out how people will be informed and can have a say in planned developments.
Since the production of our first SCI in 2006 there have been significant changes to the planning system. We have updated the SCI to respond to the requirements of new legislation. The updated SCI was adopted at a meeting of the Economic Development Committee on 11 March 2015.

COVID-19 changes to the SCI
During the COVID-19 pandemic, not all requirements of the statement of community involvement can be met. Emergency regulations have removed the requirement to deposit planning policy documents publicly.
To be clear that we are unable to engage in the same way during the pandemic, an annexe to the SCI (PDF File, 436kb) was adopted at Economic Development Committee on 9 September 2020
