New Local Plan

Our consultants TRL have prepared a Scoping Report, which sets the framework for the future Strategic Environmental Appraisal (SEA) and Sustainability Appraisal (SA) of the new Local Plan. The SEA/SA process seeks to ensure that we take account of all appropriate social, economic and environmental considerations when drawing up our new Local Plan.

This consultation on the draft Scoping Report is being carried out in accordance with the SEA Directive and the Environmental Assessment of Plans and Programmes Regulations 2004. Key consultees have been contacted directly and asked for feedback on this report. Responses should be sent by email to by Friday 16 June 2017.
