Current consultations

Consultation on Swale Borough Council’s draft Statement of Community Involvement 20th October 2017 – 4th December 2017 is now closed. The consultation comments and Council's draft responses can be viewed on the consultation portal.

Swale Borough Council is seeking to ensure that emphasis is firmly placed on early engagement and collaboration with neighbourhoods, local organisations and businesses, to ensure that planning decisions are inclusive of people and communities who want to be involved.

An important part of this process is the Statement of Community Involvement (SCI).  This is a document that each Council prepares to explain how it will consult local communities and other interested persons when it is deciding the planning policies to be included in its Local Plan and before it determines planning applications. The intention is that local planning authorities should be informative and receptive to views right from the earliest stages and throughout the planning process, to give everyone the opportunity to contribute.

We have now published a draft of our SCI and are asking for your views on how you think we should consult with you. Throughout the document are a number of questions which we would particularly like your thoughts on. The answers to these questions will help us to draft the final version of our SCI prior to adoption.
