Sustainability appraisal (SA)

The policies and proposals contained in the local plan must be appraised to ensure that they contribute to the aims of sustainable development. The SA/SEA document sets out the results of this appraisal. 

Local plan review

An SA/SEA scoping report for the local plan review has been developed, which is being subject to SA/SEA. In line with the SEA regulations, we are issuing this consultation to the statutory consultees for this process (Natural England, Historic England and the Environment Agency). Consultation took place for five weeks between 18 December 2017 and 22 January 2018. This consultation is now closed.
