Sustainability Appraisal Scoping Report

As part of the preparation of the Greater Norwich Local Plan (GNLP) an appraisal of the social, environmental and economic impact of the plan must be carried out. This appraisal is known as a Sustainability Appraisal (SA). The SA will also meet the requirements for Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) of the GNLP.

In order to identify the scope and level of detail of the information to be included in the SA a scoping report has been produced for the GNLP. Between 20 June and 15 August 2016 the authorities consulted with Historic England, Natural England, the Environment Agency and other relevant bodies on the content of the Scoping Report.

Having taken account of representations made in response to the consultation, a series of amendments were made to the Scoping Report. These amendments were agreed by Broadland District Council, Norwich City Council and South Norfolk Council between January and March 2017.

A copy of the final SA scoping report is available to view below.
