Saham Toney Neighbourhood Plan
Based on the contents of the Saham Toney Neighbourhood Plan (Regulation 14 Pre-Submission Publication), the responses of the statutory bodies, and an assessment against the Environmental Assessment of Plans and Programmes Regulations, it is decided that the Plan does not need a Strategic Environmental Assessment
Reasons for the decision:
To enable the progression of the Saham Toney Neighbourhood Plan
Alternative options considered:
The Council, as part of its duty to ‘advise and assist’, should consider whether a Neighbourhood Plan requires a Strategic Environmental Assessment. Therefore, the only alternative option available would be to decide that the Plan does not require an Environmental Assessment; however, this is covered through the process of undertaking the screening process itself.
There is not a ‘do nothing’ option to consider as a determination is required by legislation.
