Updated Local Plan Sustainability Appraisal Scoping Report June 2017

This updated Scoping Report replaces the 2012 version and was produced to make sure that the social, environmental and economic issues identified are up to date, and will be considered when assessing policy documents. It was the subject of public consultation between 27 February and 10 April 2017. All comments received have been considered and changes were incorporated into the published Cheshire East Local Plan Sustainability Appraisal Scoping Report (PDF, 2.2MB) where appropriate.

A Consultation Statement (PDF, 0.4MB) has also been produced showing the comments/issues raised on the SA Scoping Report, the council's response to them, and it identifies any changes made.
