Getting Involved

Details of the Local Plan documents currently being consulted on by Knowsley Council are listed below.

We are currently consulting on the following documents:

 

Consultation on Knowsley’s Draft Statement of Community Involvement

The draft Statement of Community Involvement verifies who the Council will consult during the preparation of the Council’s policy documents, like local plans and supplementary planning documents; in decisions on individual planning applications; and in support for neighbourhood planning proposals prepared by the local community. The Statement also confirms the different communication methods to be used, including the Council’s website, email, social media, site notices, letters and press notices. The Council has prepared the new Statement of Community Involvement, to replace that adopted in 2017.
 
We are carrying out six weeks of public consultation on the draft Statement of Community Involvement, running from 9am on Monday 14 November until 5pm on Friday 23 December 2022.
