Sustainability Appraisal Scoping Report

Consultation on the Sustainability Appraisal Scoping Report for the Strategic Housing Needs Study (SHNS) and GBSLEP Spatial Plan for Growth (SPG) is now open. The Report can be downloaded here.

Sustainability Appraisal is the process of informing and influencing the development of the SPG to maximise the sustainability value of the plan. This report is the first stage of Sustainability Appraisal, in which key datasets, plans, policies and programmes for the area are analysed.  This forms a baseline against which the SHNS and SPG can be assessed in terms of sustainability.

If you would like to respond to this consultation on the SA Scoping Report, please email your comments to by 5pm on 28th October 2015.
