Bank Holiday Monday

Please be aware the Council offices will be closed for the Bank Holiday Monday on May 29th and will reopen on Tuesday, May 30th

As part of the preparation of the Emerging Local Plan an appraisal of the social, environmental and economic impact of the plan must be carried out. This appraisal is known as Sustainability Appraisal (SA).

In addition to SA, Local Plans must comply with the requirements of the Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA), in accordance with European Directive 2001/42/EC, to ensure that environmental effects are given full consideration alongside social and economic issues when preparing the Local Plan. Therefore, the requirements of the SEA Directive have been incorporated into the SA scoping process.

In order to identify the scope and level of detail of the information to be included in the SA, this Scoping Report has been produced for the NNLP.

Between 10th October and 21st November 2016 the Council will be consulting with Historic England, Natural England, the Environment Agency and other relevant bodies on the content of the Scoping Report. Whilst this is primarily a technical consultation other organisations and individuals may also submit representations.

Comments should be submitted to, or by post to: Planning Policy Team, NNDC, Holt Road, Cromer, NR27 9EN.

If you would like further information on the SA Scoping Report then please contact the Policy team by email at the above address or on 01263 516318.
