The STATEMENT OF COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT (SCI) (PDF, 698KB) sets out how and when we will engage with the community and other key stakeholders when we prepare and revise Local Plan documents. It also explains how the community will be consulted on planning applications. This SCI provides a summary of how the Council will provide pre-planning application advice. Detailed pre-application advice, in terms of the principles, process, service and the cost, will be given in a separate Council document, found on the council website, http://www.lancaster.gov.uk/planning. The Council’s pre-application advice is subject to its own approval process. Keeping detailed pre-application advice separate from this SCI, allows the advice to be more readily updated.
