Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) Screening Report
Neighbourhood plans must be compatible with, and not breach, EU obligations. A strategic environmental assessment may be necessary where the Plan is likely to cause ‘significant environment effects’. Where an area has European sites, the Habitat Directive may also be triggered. It is a requirement that all Neighbourhood Plans are accompanied by either a strategic environmental assessment report or a screening report to show that the Plan will not lead to significant environmental effects and does not require a strategic environmental assessment.
