Sustainability Appraisal (SA)

The role of the SA is to consider all the likely significant effects that the draft City Plan Part 2 may have on various environmental, economic and social factors. The process incorporates the requirements of the Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) Directive. Information on the reasonable alternative options that have been considered and discounted in favour of the draft City Plan Part Two policies are set in the full SA Report (PDF 8MB). There is also a non-technical summary of the Sustainability Appraisal (PDF 385 KB) available.

Health & Equalities Impact Assessment (HEQIA)

The HEQIA (PDF 2.8MB) Has been undertaken to ensure the draft policies are coordinated to address equalities, health and well-being outcomes throughout the city. Some draft policies have been refined through recommendations arising from the HEQIA.

Habitats Regulation Assessment

A Habitats Regulation Assessment (HRA) has been carried out to establish if the CPP2 might have any Likely Significant Effects on any European sites. The HRA has concluded that the proposed plan will not have significant adverse impacts on any designated European sites.
