Revised Statement of Community Involvement 2016
What is the Statement of Community Involvement?
Our Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) sets out how we will involve local
people, local businesses and other key organisations and stakeholders when we prepare
our planning policies and consider planning applications. All local planning authorities
must have an up to date SCI. We consulted on our revised SCI in 2015/2016. In April
2016 Camden’s Cabinet decided to adopt the revised SCI which includes the proposal
to stop sending letters.
What are the proposed changes?
From 1st October 2016 we will no longer send neighbour notification letters about
planning applications, we will replace them with:
- new and improved site notices;
- improved email
alerts – create email alerts for planning applications within 500 metres of your
property, or for specific wards. This includes new applications, decisions, and appeals
and a direct link to the application details, documents and drawings;
- a planning section in the Camden Account;
- improved press adverts in the Camden New Journal and the Ham & High;
- an online
map showing all applications received in the last 7 days.

Committee on 18th July 2016 which agreed to uphold the original decision
