Strategic Environmental Assessment

The Swaffham Bulbeck neighbourhood plan is being subject to a strategic environmental assessment (often referred to as SEA). An SEA is required for some types of planning policy documents. It is a tool used at the plan-making stage to assess the likely effects of a plan on the environment when judged against reasonable alternatives.

As part of the SEA process, an environmental report has been prepared. Prior to this, the SEA scoping report was prepared. One of the purposes of the SEA scoping report is to agree a methodology in undertaking the environmental assessment. The views of Natural England, Historic England and the Environment Agency were sought following the drafting of the SEA scoping report.

The SEA environmental report includes a non-technical summary which is available to view as a separate document below.
