Wealden District Council is asking residents, community organisations and businesses how they would like to be involved in the local planning process in the years ahead.
The Statement of Community Involvement explains how the public will be involved in the preparation of new planning documents.
Councillor Ann Newton, Wealden District Council’s Cabinet member for Planning and Development, said:
An important part of the planning process is to consult with members of the public, local authorities, service providers and businesses.
This includes both our wider planning policies and individual development applications.
It will also take account of a number of changes in legislation since the Council’s last Statement of Community Involvement was published in 2015.
Councillor Newton added:
It is important everyone is able to have a say in the planning process. With the improvements we have all seen in digital communications, we welcome opportunities to improve the way we consult in the most efficient and timely way.
