SEA and HRA Screening Assessment

A screening assessment was undertaken in September 2015 to check if the emerging draft Neighbourhood Plan required a Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) or a Habitat Regulations Assessment (HRA). The three statutory consultees were consulted (Environment Agency, Historic England, and Natural England). The SEA and HRA screening assessment and the consultee responses can be viewed here:

Area Designation

Bromsgrove District Council approved the designation of the parish of Alvechurch as a neighbourhood area in January 2013. This was in accordance with the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012. The qualifying body was Alvechurch Parish Council. 

Request for Notification

Any representation may also include a request to the District Council to be notified of the local authority’s decision on whether the neighbourhood plan is to be ‘made’ in accordance with Regulation 19 of the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012 (as amended). Please make this request using the question/answer box at the end of the representation form.
