3. Sustainability Appraisal (SA)

The Local Plan and its developing and evolving strategy and policy choices will need to be informed by ongoing Sustainability Appraisal work. The start of this involves producing and consulting on a Sustainability Appraisal Scoping Report – this forms a baseline assessment of what East Devon is like now against which emerging policy choices can be considered.

This Sustainability Appraisal scoping report is open for consultation until 12noon on Monday 15 March 2021. Any comments should sent to  and should be clearly marked as relevant and related to the Sustainability Appraisal Scoping Report.
