Consultation - Draft Statement of Community Involvement

Published: 21 March 2018

Dear Sir/Madam

We are contacting you to inform you that East Hampshire District Council is currently consulting on the draft Statement of Community Involvement (2018). This is the third Statement of Community Involvement produced by the Council and upon adoption will supersede the current Statement of Community Involvement that was adopted in January 2015.

The document has been published for public consultation to give residents, businesses, Town and Parish Councils and other groups an opportunity to have a say in how they want to be involved in guiding future development within those parts of East Hampshire District outside of the South Downs National Park.

The six week consultation period will commence on Friday 16th March 2018 and close at 5pm Friday 27 April 2018.

Copies of the documents are also available online at the Council’s website:

Once the consultation has closed, comments will be considered. A final version of the document will then be produced and it is anticipated that this document will be adopted by Council in Summer 2018.
