The council's Statement of Community Involvement sets local standards for community involvement in planning decisions.

The council consulted on a Revised Statement of Community Involvement, to take account of more recent changes to national legislation and regulations, in July 2013. The deadline for comments was 13 September 2013.

The Council adopted the Revised Statement of Community Involvement on 10 March 2014.
