Central Lancashire Local Plan: Integrated Assessment (IA) Scoping Report
(incorporating Sustainability Appraisal; Health Impact Assessment; and Equalities Impact Assessment)

All local authorities are required to undertake a sustainability appraisal of their emerging Local Plans, to ensure they contribute to achieving sustainable development.

We have produced a draft scoping report, setting out the proposed scope and methodology to be used in the sustainability appraisal of the proposals in the emerging Central Lancashire Local Plan. The framework in this scoping report will be used to assess the emerging plan proposals against relevant social, environmental and economic objectives, to ensure they are the most appropriate, given reasonable alternatives.

In addition to sustainability appraisal, the scoping report also includes Health Impact Assessment and Equalities Impact Assessment requirements.

We are now seeking comments on the draft IA scoping report (in particular the objectives and assessment criteria set out in the IA framework at chapter 6 of the document).
