The Council's Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) explains the Authority's approach to involving the community in the preparation and review of its planning policy documents and in development control decisions.
A number of consultations and meetings to discuss the development of the Strategic Local Plan have helped shape the current draft.
In preparing Strategic Local Plan and Detailed Local Plan, the District Council has taken into account the views and observations of the Council's Sustainability Appraisal consultants. The consultants were engaged at an early stage in the preparation process, in order to assess possible options against the agreed Sustainability Appraisal/Strategic Environmental Assessment framework for St Albans District and to influence the policy-making process.
