SA/SEA Post Adoption Statement
The most recent stage in the Sustainability Appraisal process has been the preparation of a SA/SEA Post Adoption Statement (May 2019). The statement presents the story of plan-making / SA up to the point of adoption and the monitoring indicators that will be applied to check the accuracy of predicted effects and to monitor progress against sustainability objectives.
Addendum to the Proposed Submission SA Report
The previous stage in the SA/SEA process for the Local Plan involved the preparation of an Addendum to the Proposed Submission SA Report (Jan 2019) to accompany Main Modifications to the Local Plan. The addendum report sets out an appraisal of the sustainability implications of the proposed modifications and an appraisal of 'the Plan as modified', thereby updating the findings presented in the Proposed Submission SA Report.
Proposed Submission Sustainability Appraisal Report
The Proposed Submission Sustainability Appraisal Report (Sept 2017), for which consultation took place in Autumn 2017, set out an appraisal of the sustainability implications of the proposed submission Local Plan and captured how the SA process has influenced the development of the plan.
Interim SA Reports
At the earlier options stage, two Interim SA Reports were produced to accompany the ‘A new Local Plan for Harborough – Options Consultation Paper’ for which consultation took place in Sept/Oct 2015 and February 2016. These reports appraised reasonable alternatives and helped to inform the selection of the approach and options presented in the Proposed Submission Local Plan.
SA Scoping Report
In the beginning, a SA Scoping Report was also prepared, for which a targeted consultation took place in June 2014.
