The LDP has been subject to a Sustainability Appraisal (SA) incorporating Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA).
The appraisal has been an iterative process throughout Plan preparation and policies and proposals within the Plan reflect the outcome of that process. The scope of the appraisal evaluates the Plan to ensure that it reflects sustainable development objectives and considers social and economic factors as well as environmental ones. It also appraises the Plan’s impact upon health, equalities and the Welsh language.
