Sustainability Appraisal and Habitats Regulation Assessment

A Sustainability Appraisal Report has been published in stages alongside the Chippenham Site Allocations Plan.  The Final SA Report comprises a suite of documents which cover the different stages of the plan making process and can be found in the relevant section below.

The Chippenham Site Allocations Plan has been screened for Habitats Regulations Assessment (HRA). The HRA screening concluded that no further assessment under Habitats Regulations was required as the Chippenham Site Allocations Plan is unlikely to have a significant effect on the integrity of European sites (Natura 2000). At stages in the Plan's preparation the HRA has been reviewed to consider proposed changes to the Plan. The Final HRA therefore comprises three documents that can be found in the relevant section below.
