Greater Cambridge Statement of Community Involvement consultation

Open from 11 February to 25 March 2019.

The Statement of Community Involvement describes how the public, businesses, interest groups and individuals can get involved in the creation of local planning policy and the planning application process, aiming at shaping where we live, work and trade.

We and South Cambridgeshire District Council have drafted a new joint Statement of Community Involvement, because our current statements are now out of date and need to be reviewed. It reflects current planning legislation, evolving best practice and the new working structures of our shared planning service. It will help us  in respect of moving towards a jointly prepared Local Plan for Greater Cambridge, the joint North East Cambridge Area Action Plan, and in development management processes.

If you have any questions about this consultation, contact the Greater Cambridge Shared Planning Service at 01223 457200.
