Draft Statement of Community Involvement - Nov 2020

  • Period: 09 November 2020 - 01 February 2021
  • Status: Open
  • Audiences: Everyone
  • Topics: Planning
  • Type: Public

The draft Statement of Community Involvement sets out how Shropshire Council will engage communities and organisations on planning issues. It provides information on how people can get involved in the preparation of planning policies and plan-making process and details how people can comment on individual planning applications.

The draft Statement of Community Involvement covers:

  • the range of planning documents and their purpose;
  • which community representatives the Council will seek to involve in the preparation of planning policy documents and in the determination of planning applications;
  • how this process will be handled;
  • when this involvement will happen;
  • and what methods will be used to encourage as wide involvement as possible.

Electronic engagement has grown in importance over recent times, influenced in part but the recent changes brought about by the coronavirus pandemic. This electronic engagement is proposed as a main engagement method for reaching a wide audience.
