Statement of Community Involvement (SCI)

We are consulting on our updated Southend  Statement of Community Involvement.  As well as covering how we will consult on further stages of the Local Plan and related documents it also addresses the approach that will be taken to seeking views on planning applications. To comment online please visit where you will need to register. Alternatively you can email representations to [email protected]

In addition to the Southend Statement of Community Involvement, a Statement of Community Involvement has been produced by the six South Essex authorities (Basildon, Brentwood, Castle Point, Rochford, Southend-on-Sea and Thurrock) and Essex County Council which sets out a framework for how the local authorities will undertake consultation on the South Essex Plan. This document will take the form of an Addendum to the existing SCI of each Council. To comment online please visit

Please send us any comments you have by 5pm on Monday 27th January 2020.
