1. Integrated Impact Assessment

We are required by law to undertake a number of assessments at all stages throughout the plan making process. We are doing these as an Integrated Impact Assessment which will include a Sustainability Assessment (SA), a Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA), a Habitats Regulations Assessment (HRA), a Health Impacts Assessment (HIA) and an Equalities Assessment (EqA). These assessments are necessary to ensure that the plan doesn’t have adverse impacts on these areas of interest we have to consider.
