Planning decisions should be made in accordance with the Development Plan, unless there are other material considerations that indicate otherwise.

Environmental Assessment

Draft iterations of the Nether Stowey Neighbourhood Plan have been screened in consultation with the statutory environmental bodies, in accordance with Part II of The Environmental Assessment of Plans and Programmes Regulations 2004 to determine whether it is likely to have significant environmental effects, and hence triggering the need for SEA. Separately, it was screened in accordance with the Habitat Regulations to determine whether Appropriate Assessment was necessary.

Sedgemoor District Council has determined that the submitted Nether Stowey Neighbourhood Plan 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 to view and download below:
