Sustainability Appraisal Supplementary Report - Revised Other Remitted Policies

SA picA Sustainability Appraisal (incorporating Strategic Environmental Assessment) of the Core Strategy was done when the Publication Version was produced in 2011.  A Supplementary Report has been produced to appraise the consequences for sustainability of revising the other remitted policies of the Core Strategy to align them with the revised 2006-2026 housing requirement of 20,985 dwellings.  Sustainability appraisal identifies, describes and evaluates the likely significant effects – environmental, economic and social – of implementing a plan and compares them with reasonable alternatives. The report’s conclusions are that no additional significant effects can be identified at the high level of the Core Strategy. Increased loss of agricultural land and increased commuter traffic are noted as the main effects, though the latter may be a short-term problem. No additional alternative strategy consistent with the objectives of the plan has been identified.

The report can be viewed here:
