With reference to Sustainability Appraisal, it appears that no detailed framework for appraising the Core Strategy has been properly considered by the Council, although there is reference within the Strategy to a number of basic sustainability criteria. Sustainability Appraisal should, however, perform a key role in providing a sound evidence base, forming an integrated part of the plan preparation process, and informing the evaluation of alternative approaches.
We consider that Sustainability Appraisal could serve a greater role in the formulation of the Core Strategy and that this should have been considered at an earlier stage in the plan-making process.
