Sustainability Appraisal Scoping Report

The Council consulted on the Sustainability Appraisal (SA) Scoping Report. This is undertaken in the pre-production stages of a Local Plan, designed to draw together information about Eden to establish a sustainability baseline and determine the key challenges for the area.

The information compiled in this report will form the foundations of the sustainability appraisal, which will be used to test how well the emerging Local Plan aligns with sustainability objectives.

We made the SA Scoping Report available for a five week consultation period, ending on 30 March 2014. We wrote to Statutory environmental consultees, along with key stakeholders to ask for their comments. Members of the public and other organisations were also invited to comment on the details of the report, which will shape the influence of the sustainability appraisal.

To help guide respondents through the consultation, a number of questions were proposed, which can be found in the Eden Local Plan: Sustainability Appraisal Scoping Report, February 2014 (PDF: 2Mb / 89 pages).
