Why we consulted

The Integrated Sustainability Appraisal (ISA) considers the social, economic, and environmental effects of the revised Local Development Plan 2018–2023. It incorporates several statutory requirements into a single document which enables a more transparent and holistic process.

We are not accepting comments on the contents on the revised Local Development Plan itself. Any comments received on the revised Local Development Plan will not be considered.

This latest consultation newly features the ISA Addendum (February 2024) which ensures procedural compliance in line with the relevant legislation. The entirety of the ISA process can be found on our website.

It is comprised of:

  • SA Scoping Report (July 2018)
  • SA Initial Report (December 2018)
  • SA Report (January 2020)
  • ISA Report (February 2023)
  • ISA Addendum (February 2024)

A non-technical summary of the above is also provided.
