We are required by law to subject our LDF documents to a process of Sustainability Appraisal (SA), incorporating the requirements of the European SEA Directive.
In light of the decision to progress the Joint Core Strategy (JCS), a joint scoping report was prepared in 2008. Following consultation with the statutory consultees, the report was amended and the resulting framework is used in the assessment of the emerging JCS. The report and framework can be downloaded from the JCS website.
We have previously prepared a scoping report and this has formed the basis of our sustainability appraisal work to date. To view a copy, click on the links below.
The SA scoping report includes a range of baseline information. To ensure the report remains useful, we have updated the baseline information and this is set out below.
