Statement of Community Involvement

The Statement of Community Involvement specifies how the Council will involve the community in the preparation of the Bury Local Plan and the Greater Manchester Spatial Framework as well as in processing planning applications. It was adopted on 16 October 2015 following a 4-week consultation in August/September 2015.
