Merton Council

Draft Statement of Community Involvement consultation


In 2006 Merton Council adopted its Statement of Community Involvement (SCI). However, since its adoption there have been a number of changes to planning legislation, planning guidance and technological advances such as social media, which have changed the way public consultations and engagement takes place and are carried out. All this means Merton's SCI (2006) requires updating to have regard to these changes.

The draft SCI sets out how Merton Council will involve local people, local businesses, stakeholders and other interested parties when preparing development planning documents and submitted planning applications. It also outlines some engagement principles for developers, who may need to consult with Merton residents regarding their development proposals.
