Sustainability Appraisal

In addition to the ‘Realising our Potential’ document, we are also inviting comments on the Sustainability Appraisal (SA) Scoping Report. This is a legally required document that has been prepared by independent consultants. SAs are prepared to ensure that we consider the potential environment, social and economic effects of a plan.

We realise that the SA Scoping Report is quite a long and technical document, but there may be elements that you wish to comment on. If so, please let us have your feedback on this too.

Additional background information

In support of the ‘Realising our Potential’ document, we have prepared a series of Topic Papers. These are intended to elaborate and further explain the issues covered in the consultation document and have been prepared on a thematic basis. These Topic Papers and other background documents that may be of interest to you are available here.

What happens next?

We will look at all of the comments received, and summarise them into a consultation report. This will be published on this website once available.

All of the comments received will help us to plan for the future of South West Hertfordshire.
