Sustainability Appraisal

All plans and documents have to be appraised for their environmental, social and economic impacts: for example, what effect does a certain option have on jobs, or on landscape or natural habitats.

The Sustainability Appraisal for the Core Strategy was undertaken by Land Use Consultants. The Sustainability Appraisal for the Site Allocations Policies was undertaken in-house by Cumbria County Council specialist minerals and waste planners, an officer with specialist knowledge of sustainability appraisal and strategic environmental assessment and with inputs from other specialists.
