Statement of Community Involvement 2016

Mole Valley District Council (MVDC) adopted the Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) 2016 at the Council Meeting on 6 December 2016.

The SCI 2016 describes how our local communities and partners can be actively involved in planning decisions. It describes how and when MVDC will involve residents, businesses and other organisations in decisions about planning applications and planning policies. This document updates the previous SCI 2010.

Key changes in the SCI 2016 include:

  • an expansion of the existing arrangements for consulting on planning applications, including increased use of site notices (as detailed on page 11 of the SCI), and the use of 'My Alerts'; a system which enables users to receive electronic notifications about planning applications within a specific area
  • updated information on how people can be involved in the preparation of the Local Plan and other planning policies, reflecting changes in legislation since 2010
  • information about how and when MVDC will consult on Neighbourhood Development Plans being produced by Parish Councils or Neighbourhood Forums. Neighbourhood Development Plans are currently being prepared in Ashtead, Bookham, Capel Parish (Beare Green, Capel and Coldharbour), Ockley and Westcott
