Dear Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council,

Here at Civic Voice we are campaigning to put public participation at the heart of the planning system. With this in mind:

- Can you confirm as to whether your local authority has a Statement of Community Involvement?

- Can you confirm when the authority has published the Statement of Community Involvement?

- When is your next expected consultation / update of the Statement of Community Involvement?

- Do you have a publicly available link to the Statement of Community Involvement?

- Is the local civic society or civic trust identified by the local planning authority as a consultee (whether statutory or non-statutory) in the planning system within the Statement of Community Involvement?

Kind Regards,

Sophie Mason
