Statement of Community Involvement (SCI)

Statement of Community Involvement (SCI)

The SCI is a statutory document that sets out the ways in which we will engage with residents, communities, businesses, local organisations and other groups to ensure as many people as possible are able to have a say in planning decisions that affect them.

The document provides guidance on how the planning system works and how we will inform, consult and involve people in planning decisions within the Arun District Local Planning Authority Area (excluding the part of the district that is covered by the South Downs National Park Planning Authority).

The SCI was adopted at Full Council on 10 January 2024.
