Dear South Staffordshire District 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 published the Statement of Community Involvement?
- When is your next expected consultation/update?
- Do you have a publicly available link to the SCI?
- 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
Finance and Administration Officer
Civic Voice

Dear Sophie

 

Freedom of Information Request Ref No: 388/2019 - Information provided

 

Thank you for your Freedom of Information Request regarding the Council’s
Statement of Community Involvement. I can confirm that the information is
available and the Council’s response is as follows:

 

The Council does have an adopted Statement of Community Involvement which
was published in April 2014.  We updated the SCI and published a revision
for public consultation in October 2018.  We have made some changes to the
new SCI in response to consultation comments and it is now going through
our constitutional process.  We hope to publish it in the new few weeks
once it has been formally adopted by Members.  You can see the adopted and
proposed revised SCIs on the Council’s website here:
[1]https://www.sstaffs.gov.uk/planning/stat...
  

 

You will see in Appendix 1 of both documents that a number of Civic and
Amenity Groups are on our consultation list.  I am happy to add your
contact details for Civic Voice to the database if you would like me to do
so.

 

If you are dissatisfied with the handling of your request, you have the
right to ask for an internal review. Internal review requests should be
submitted within two months of the date of receipt of the response to your
original letter and should be addressed to: The Data Protection & Freedom
of Information Officer, South Staffordshire District Council, Council
Offices, Codsall, WV8 1PX.

 

Please remember to quote the reference number above in any future
communications.

 

If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you have
the right to apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a
decision. The Information Commissioner can be contacted at: Information
Commissioner's Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9
5AF.

 

Kind regards

 

Karen
