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.

Authorities Monitoring Report

The Authorities Monitoring Report sets out how Barnet's planning policies have been implemented over the previous financial year and how the council's planning documents are progressing.

The Authorities Monitoring Report (AMR) also sets out how planning documents such as the Core Strategy and Development Management Policies are performing. Through a framework of monitoring indicators we can measure in the AMR how Barnet is changing and how that change is managed. The AMR also covers progress with receipts generated by the Community Infrastructure Levy as well as activities arising from the Localism Act such as Neighbourhood Plans.
