Environmental Assessment

In November 2016, the Cheddar Draft Neighbourhood Plan 2011 - 2027 was submitted to Sedgemoor District Council for assessment to determine whether it is likely to have significant environmental effects.  The draft plan was screened in accordance with Part II of The Environmental Assessment of Plans and Programmes Regulations 2004 to determine whether SEA was necessary, in consultation with the statutory environmental bodies. Separately, it was screened in accordance with the Habitat Regulations to determine whether Appropriate Assessment was necessary. Sedgemoor District Council has determined that the Cheddar Draft Neighbourhood Plan 2011 - 2027 is not likely to have significant environmental effects and that an environmental assessment is not required in respect of the draft plan.  The Determination under Regulation 9(1) and the accompanying Statement is available as a PDF download below, although should a hard copy be required please contact the Planning Policy team using the contact details below
