North East Lincolnshire Council

Statement of community involvement

How to get involved in the preparation of the new Local Plan and have your say!

Community involvement is an important part of the process of preparing the new Local Plan for North East Lincolnshire. The Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) sets out how the Council proposes to involve the community and others in the preparation, alteration and review of the Local Plan for North East Lincolnshire.

Following public consultation the latest Statement of Community Involvement was adopted by the Council on 11 February 2013. It aims to encourage those with an interest in North East Lincolnshire to come together in the spirit of co-operation with others, to prepare a mutually agreed new Local Plan for the Borough. By promoting an open and transparent process where communities and stakeholders are encouraged to be involved in, and have greater ownership of, the decisions being made.

So that we can keep you informed of progress on the preparation of the new Local Plan and let you know about the latest consultation we maintain a local plan database. Any individual, group, organisation or business can request inclusion on this database at any time.

To be included on the database you can either:

Whilst reference to specific groups has been removed from the latest SCI the Council will make every reasonable effort to maintain an up to date list of current groups with whom it will engage.
