As part of the production of its Core Strategy Preferred Options Report 2012, the Council undertook a SA/SE.

A Sustainability Appraisal Report (SA Report), documenting the findings of the SA process, is being published alongside the Core Strategy Preferred Options, in accordance with the SEA Regulations and SA Guidance.

The SA Report for the Core Strategy Preferred Options Report and its appendices are available below:

The Council has consulted on both its Core Strategy SA/SEA Scoping Report and its Site Assessment Methodology & Criteria. This consultation lasted for five weeks (2 July - 6 August 2008) and 32 statutory and specialist organisations were invited to comment on the draft.
