13Items for Information

(a)The new planning system includes a statutory requirement that the Council produce a document called ' the Statement of Community Involvement' . This will set out how people will be consulted on all the planning documents that the Council will produce and on planning applications.

Accordingly a workshop/conference will be held on the morning of Friday , 30th June , 2006, to which as many different groups and organisations as possible are to be invited. The purpose of the workshop is to find out how people want to be consulted. Invitations have been sent to all tenants and residents groups and as many forums/groups as possible . Attached is a flyer regarding the Conference which will be appearing in Life IN Salford and various community newsletters . It would , however , be appreciated if Members could make their nominating organisations aware of the event .
