We have written a new Statement of Community Involvement.

This Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) has been written to tell residents and businesses how they can take part in:

  • The Portsmouth Local Plan review
  • Small scale planning applications for homeowners and businesses
  • 'Major' planning applications such as the redevelopment of a large area of land

We have done our best to make this document easy to use and avoid the use of jargon. Where we use a planning or a technical term we explain it in the text.  

The intention for this document, when finalised, is to replace the previous Statement of Community Involvement which is almost five years old.

We want your views on the draft Statement. We want to hear from residents, businesses and organisations if you think we have got the document right or if you think we should change anything. We are publishing this document for 4 weeks for comments.

Please email comments to us at planningpolicy@portsmouthcc.gov.uk using the comment form below. Or print, complete and return to the civic offices or libraries:
