Thank you for your patience whilst IT have been resolving the problems. The majority of our systems are now back online and IT are working hard to resolve the final few.
Nearly all problems have been resolved, although customers may still get a "delivery failure" reply if emailing a Council department.
You can still carry out most transactions on our website. If you need to contact us by phone and your call is urgent we will try to help you. If your call is not urgent please contact us in the latter half of next week as we anticipate the first half of the week to be extremely busy.
We apologise for any inconvenience while we work to resolve this problem.
On 28 March 2014, the Local Plan and its supporting documents were submitted for independent examination to the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government via the Planning Inspectorate. The supporting documents include the Draft Final Sustainability Appraisal and Habitat Regulations Assessment Screening Report.
Information on what happens next is set out on the Local Plan webpage.
Sustainability Appraisal is an integral part of the plan making process and the overall aim of this process is to help ensure that the Local Plan makes an effective contribution to the pursuit of 'sustainable development'.
The Local Plan is now accompanied by a draft Final Sustainability Report. It consists of three parts:
Part 1: Introduction - sets out the context for the sustainability appraisal, provides an outline of the contents and main objectives of the Local Plan and identifies where the requirements of the regulations have been met.
Part 2: Scoping Report - sets out the scope of the sustainability appraisal, the baseline data, the sustainability objectives and targets of other relevant documents, the key sustainability issues and the assessment framework used to assess the Local Plan.
It also includes an audit trail (see Annex A) setting out the alternative options considered for each of the policies and site allocations included in the Local Plan and the reasons for the chosen approach.
A Habitats Regulations Assessment Screening Report has also been prepared, to consider whether there would be any impact on important European nature conservation sites.
The draft Final Sustainability Appraisal Report was subject to public consultation in July – October 2013 alongside the Proposed Submission Local Plan, this version can be viewed using the online consultation system.
The draft Final Sustainability Appraisal Report has been updated following the public consultation, and the complete report is available to download:
