2: Comments on the Sustainability Appraisal

If you have any comments on the Sustainability Appraisal please tell us below:

Interim Sustainability Appraisal:

In our view, the Sustainability Appraisal provides a fair and detailed assessment of the sustainability performance of the priorities, building blocks, guiding principles and various policy and locational options for accommodating growth and new development. It identifies a number of aspects that could be strengthened and makes recommendations for subsequent stages of the Local Plan, all of which Natural England would support, particularly with respect to making more explicit the role of GI in addressing the effects of Climate Change and the health benefits of enhancing access to green space and active travel.

Given the challenge of meeting raised ambitions across many of the Plan’s priorities, the SA is an important tool for furthering integration of objectives and policies and helping to avoid ‘trade-offs’ between what can be viewed as conflicting goals.
