Sustainability Appraisal

The production of the Local Plan was accompanied by a Sustainability Appraisal (SA), which assessed its potential economic, social, and environmental effects. Feedback from the SA influenced the contents of the Local Plan at every stage of its production.

On this page, you can see a consolidated Sustainability Appraisal, which assesses the likely effects of the Plan’s provisions overall, and a specific Assessment of the potential effects arising from the Main and Further Main Modifications.

N.B. The key to explain the colour-coding of Assessments can be seen in Table 7 on page 54 of the Main Report.
