Have your say on new Somerset Council planning consultation process
Somerset residents are being invited to have their say on the new Somerset Council’s approach to planning matters.
The five current Somerset councils (Mendip District Council, Sedgemoor District Council, Somerset County Council, Somerset West and Taunton Council and South Somerset District Council) are consulting the public on a draft ‘Statement of Community Involvement’ (SCI) – a single approach to planning which will be formally adopted by the new Somerset Council.
The SCI is designed to set out how Somerset Council, as the Local Planning Authority, will engage and consult with the community and stakeholders on all planning matters.
It will cite who the Council will consult with through the various stages of Local Plan preparation and what consultation methods should be used.
The consultation will run until Thursday 16 March 2023.
