Sustainability appraisal

A way of assessing different options according to how well they might achieve sustainable development

Our sustainability appraisal scoping report has been developed in consultation with key agencies like the Environment Agency, Natural England and Historic England and sets the scene for sustainability appraisal of the New local plan, by identifying local issues, setting local objectives and providing a testing system that's relevant to the local area. You can download a copy of the report below.
