Revised Statement of Community Involvement now available for comment
Oxfordshire Minerals and Waste Local Plan
Consultation on Revised Statement of Community Involvement
Wednesday 24th July – Wednesday 2nd October 2019
The County Council wants to make sure that everyone within an interest in Minerals, Waste and County Council developments within Oxfordshire has the opportunity to be actively and meaningfully involved.
The Oxfordshire Statement of Community Involvement sets out how the County Council will engage with and involve people and organisations in the preparation of the Minerals and Waste Local Plan and in the consideration of planning applications for Minerals, Waste and County Council developments.
The current Statement of Community Involvement was adopted by the County Council in 2015. Following some recent changes in planning laws and procedures, the Council has decided that the Statement of Community Involvement should be reviewed and updated.
The County Council is now consulting on a draft revised Statement of Community Involvement. Anyone who is interested can make comment and give us their views. To make it easier to see where changes have been made from the current Statement of Community Involvement, we have underlined or
deleted where amendments have been made.
The draft revised Statement of Community Involvement and response form can be viewed and downloaded on the OCC website.
It is also available to view at Oxfordshire County Council, County Hall, Oxford, OX1 1ND.
It will also be available to view in the following libraries across Oxfordshire:
Abingdon Berinsfield Didcot Kennington Wallingford
Bampton Bicester Eynsham Kidlington Wantage
Banbury Burford Faringdon Oxford County Witney
Benson Carterton Henley Sonning Common Woodstock
