The Strategic Environmental Assessment

A Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) is a mechanism for considering and communicating the impacts of an emerging plan, and potential alternatives in terms of key environmental issues. The aim of SEA is to inform and influence the plan-making process with a view to avoiding and mitigating negative impacts. Through this approach, the SEA for the Hayle Neighbourhood Plan seeks to maximise the developing plan’s contribution to sustainable development.

SEA is undertaken to address the procedures prescribed by the Environmental Assessment of Plans and Programmes Regulations 2004 (the SEA Regulations). The Hayle Neighbourhood Plan has been screened in by Cornwall Council to require a Strategic Environmental Assessment. To meet this requirement, the Neighbourhood Plan is undergoing an SEA process which incorporates the requirements of the SEA Directive.

Two key procedural requirements of the SEA Regulations are that:

  1. A report (the ‘Environmental Report’) is published for consultation alongside the Draft Plan that presents an appraisal of the Draft Plan (i.e. discusses ‘likely significant effects’ that would result from plan implementation) and reasonable alternatives; and
  2. When deciding on ‘the scope and level of detail of the information’ which must be included in the Environmental Report there is a consultation with nationally designated authorities concerned with environmental issues.
