Strategic Environmental Assessment

Brighton & Hove City Council has carried out a screening exercise to determine whether the Rottingdean Neighbourhood Plan will require a Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA).  The screening exercise indicates that an SEA will not be required. This has been confirmed by consultation with the South Downs National Park Authority, and the three statutory environmental consultees: Natural England, the Environment Agency and Historic England.
