Hello there – has anyone here been asked to do an SEA for their Neighbourhood Plan? We are nearing the end of our process and concerned that we may still be asked to do one (meeting the Planning Officer tomorrow).
I know that St Minver Parish Council in Cornwall have been told they require one as they have a SSI in their Parish. When I was doing a locality funding interview I was told our (neighbouring) PC might need one too, only to have that refuted by the AONB office!
Hi Tessa, yes we will need to have a Strategic Environmental Assessment of our NDP. We have proceeded to pre-submission stage and then will submit it to our District Council for them to carry out the SEA. Hopefully all will be well & we will submit the final version with any necessary amendments incorporated arising from the SEA. Hope this helps. Phil Rowe Newton Abbot NDP
