Strategic Environmental Assessment
Brighton & Hove City Council has carried out a screening exercise to determine whether the Hove Station Neighbourhood Plan will require a Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA). The screening exercise indicates that an SEA will be required covering a number of issues. This has been confirmed following consultation with the statutory environmental bodies, as required by the Strategic Environmental Assessment Regulations (Environmental Assessment of Plan and Programmes Regulations 2004).
