Dear East Devon 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 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
Finance and Administration Officer
Civic Voice

East Devon District Council

Can you confirm when the authority published the Statement of Community
Involvement? - Publications dates were October 2018 and February 2017.

When is your next expected consultation / update of the Statement of
Community Involvement? - At this point in time specific dates for an
update have not been identified.

Do you have a publicly available link to the Statement of Community
Involvement? - See links above.

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? ? There is
no references to "civic society" or "civic trust" as a consultee.

I hope this information is helpful but, if you feel dissatisfied with the
