Statement of Community Involvement

The Planning Act (Northern Ireland) 2011 requires our Council to publish a Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) to explain how people can become involved in the planning process. 

This mainly includes the following planning functions for which Council has responsibility:

The Council’s approach to community involvement aims to provide:

  • The opportunity to comment on planning applications or make representations to proposals contained in the LDP at an early stage;
  • Fair, transparent and proportionate consultation appropriate to the scale of proposals;
  • Access to clear and timely information with documents available in various formats, as requested.
