Development framework

Statement of Community Involvement

A key objective of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act is to encourage meaningful stakeholder and public involvement throughout the planning process.

The Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) (PDF 627.5KB) provides an overview of the ways in which the public can get involved in both the determination of planning applications and key stages in the preparation of the Minerals and Waste Development Framework within the Plan area.

The SCI for Minerals and Waste was adopted by the former Bedfordshire County Council on 12 October 2006.

It covers the whole of the Plan area (Bedford Borough, Central Bedfordshire, and Luton Borough Councils) with respect to minerals and waste planning.
