Closed 17 Apr 2018

Opened 6 Mar 2018


East Sussex County Council, Brighton & Hove City Council and the South Downs National Park Authority (the Authorities) have responsibility for planning for the future management of waste and the production of minerals within their administrative areas.  The three Authorities work in partnership to prepare and monitor the Waste and Minerals Local Plan for the area of East Sussex and Brighton & Hove and part of the South Downs National Park. At this time, the Authorities are undertaking a review of the Plan, with a focus on the supply of minerals. 
As part of this review the Authorities are required to undertake a Sustainability Appraisal of any proposed revised policies. A Scoping Report has been prepared which sets out the steps for undertaking the Sustainability Appraisal (SA), incorporating the requirements of the EU Strategic Environmental Assessment Directive and the Environmental Assessments of Plans and Programmes Regulations 2004, for the Waste and Minerals Local Plan – Review. 
The Authorities are now seeking comments on this report to inform how the Sustainability Appraisal is undertaken during the review.
