​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Consultation on Statement of Community Involvement 2019
Chorley Council is required to produce a Statement of Community Involvement (SCI), which sets out how the Council will involve community groups, stakeholders and other organisations in the preparation and review of planning policy documents, and in the consideration of planning applications. The current SCI was adopted by the Council in 2014 and this is now being updated to reflect changes in the planning system.

The consultation on the Draft SCI took place between 18th January 2019 - 15th February 2019. The council will consider the response to this consultation in finalising the SCI for adoption in Spring 2019. 

  • Central Lancashire Local Plan Call for Sites

It asks organisations and the public to submit land that would be suitable for future development of housing, infrastructure, employment land, public spaces and amenities. We are especially interested in small housing or commercial sites; there is no minimum size for the hectarage of submitted sites and anyone may submit one to us, anyone who has already submitted a site to us in Part 1 does not need to submit this again. Anyone can submit sites to us by completing the Call for Sites form at the link below.

    The consultation will run from Monday 28th January – 8th April 2019. Central Lancashire Local Plan Call for Sites.
