Sustainability Appraisal Scoping Report

Closed 15 Oct 2018

Opened 3 Sep 2018


The Council has produced a Scoping Report for the Sustainability Appraisal (SA) (incorporating Equality Impact Assessment and Health Impact Assessment) of the North West Leicestershire (NWL) Local Plan Review for your consideration.

The NWL Local Plan was adopted in November 2017 and covered the period 2011-2031. Policy S1 of the adopted Local Plan stated that an early review would be undertaken within three months of adoption. Preparation of the Local Plan Review began earlier in 2018.  

The Scoping Report provides detailed baseline information on the environmental, social and economic characteristics of the plan area, including the likely evolution of the baseline position which would occur without the plan. 

The Scoping Report is being consulted on with key stakeholders and the public in order to agree the scope of the SA. Consultation runs for six weeks. Please respond by the end of 15 October 2018.
