Uttlesford District Council published a revised Sustainability Appraisal for its Regulation 19 Pre-submission Local Plan. It is this Sustainability Appraisal December 2018 that people were invited to comment on.
What is a Sustainability Appraisal?
A Sustainability Appraisal is a tool to assess the extent to which the Local Plan, when judged against reasonable alternatives, will help to achieve relevant environmental, economic and social objectives.
The Regulation 19 Pre-Submission Local Plan October 2018 was supported by the Sustainability Appraisal June 2018. Following issues raised by the Inspector into the North Essex Authorities Strategic (Section 1) Plan, Uttlesford DC commissioned a fundamental update of the Sustainability Appraisal.
The Local Plan will be submitted to the Secretary of State in January 2019 along with the Sustainability Appraisal (SA) December 2018 and other supporting information. The representations received on the SA will be submitted to the Secretary of State following the close of the representation period.
