Statement of Community Involvement
The Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) sets out how the council will involve local residents, businesses and community groups in the preparation of planning documents and the consideration of planning applications. Initially introduced in 2007 and subsequently revised in 2015, the SCI has been updated to reflect further reforms to the planning system. This includes the introduction of the Brownfield Land Register and Permission in Principle.
The commitments set out in the SCI will ensure that planning processes in Barnet are fair, transparent and inclusive.

It explains which Local Plan documents are going to be produced, by whom and when, with key dates from initial preparation to adoption. It also explains the purpose and scope of each Local Plan document and the role of each within the Local Plan.
In addition, it explains the strategic and local planning context for the Local Plan.
