Sustainability Appraisal Scoping Report

The Council must carry out and consult on a Sustainability Appraisal (SA) of the new Local Plan, alongside its preparation. Sustainability appraisal is how we make sure that the policies and proposals of the Local Plan, taken individually and together, can deliver the most sustainable patterns and forms of development possible, taking account of social, economic and environmental considerations. 

The preparation of a Scoping Report is the first stage in the SA process. A Draft Scoping Report was published for consultation in September 2016. A number of comments were received and where relevant, the Draft SA Scoping Report was amended accordingly. The amended (final) version of the SA Scoping Report including appendices can be viewed via the following links:
