Some people find the idea of a website storing information on their computer or mobile device a bit intrusive, particularly when this information is stored and used by a third party without them knowing. Although this is generally quite harmless you may not, for example, want to see advertising that has been targeted to your interests. If you prefer, it is possible to block some or all cookies, or even to delete cookies that have already been set; but you need to be aware that you might lose some functions of that website.

Statement of Community Involvement

The Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) sets out how the SDNPA will effectively involve residents, groups, organisations, businesses, other representatives and individuals within the community in planning decisions and the preparation of planning policies, including those in the emerging South Downs National Park Authority Local Plan.

The first Statement of Community Involvement was adopted in March 2012. Since the adoption of the document there have been a number of changes to national planning policy and legislation. The SCI has now been revised to take this into account and the required factual changes have been made.

The latest revision of theĀ Statement of Community Involvement was approved by the South Downs National Park Authority in August 2017.
