LPP2: Site Allocations and Development Management Policies

Sustainability Appraisal

1.11 A Sustainability Appraisal (SA) has been carried out as part of preparing Local Plan Part 2. This is a process to ensure local plan policies and proposals for site allocations are consistent with the aims of sustainable development. A SA must incorporate the requirements of the European Directive on Strategic Environmental Assessments (2001).

1.12 Reasonable alternatives for sites and policies considered for inclusion in Local Plan Part 2 have been appraised against a defined set of SA objectives. The results of this appraisal are contained within the Final SA report.
