Consultation on the draft Statement of Community Involvement has just started, with Dorset Council asking for feedback by 2 August.
At just seven pages and fairly generous spacing, the question is, does it say enough? In my experience the main issues raised by members of the public are not hearing about planning applications and the lack of officer support on neighbourhood plans. I am not sure this Statement really addresses those questions clearly - the word "may" certainly appears at least 10 times!
So this is your chance to comment - what would you like them to actually say and stick to?
