Statement of Community Involvement (SCI)

The Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) is the Council's commitment to consulting the community on planning issues. The SCI describes how the public, businesses and interest groups can get involved in the creation of local planning policy and in making decisions on planning applications.

The preparation of an SCI is a legal requirement and the Council must comply with its SCI once it has been adopted.

The current version of the SCI was adopted by Surrey Heath Borough Council's Executive on the 11th July 2017.


The Statement of Community Involvement 2019 update was consulted on from Tuesday 5th November until Tuesday 17th December 2019.

All comments received during the consultation period will be considered and any necessary amendments will be made to update the Statement of Community Involvement, prior to its adoption.
