Sustainability Appraisal / Strategic Environmental Assessment

The Sustainability Appraisal Scoping Report (SA) is the first stage of the Sustainability Appraisal / Strategic Environmental Assessment (SA/SEA) process and sets the context for the SA of the Revised Local Development Plan (LDP) 2018 - 2033.

The SA will test the LDP for its effect on the environmental, social and economic aspects of the County. The Scoping Report is important because it will determine the key sustainability objectives for the County which will in turn be used as a means to test the LDP in due course.

We are keen to receive feedback from all interested persons and groups on the appropriateness of the approach set out in the scoping report. The report will then be reviewed in the light of responses received with a view to taking forward a framework for testing the LDP in the months ahead. 

Your views on the SA scoping report are welcomed. In light of the programme and timetable for the preparation of the plan, the response period will run from Tuesday 17 July to Monday 27th August.
