Ashfield District Council has undertaken a Strategic Environmental Assessment Screening Report of the Pre Submission Consultation Neighbourhood Plan. After consultation with the relevant statutory agencies (the Environment Agency, Natural England and Historic England) the Council has determined that a strategic environmental assessment of the Neighbourhood Plan is not required as it is not likely to have significant environmental effects. As such, it is the opinion of Ashfield District Council that the Teversal, Stanton Hill and Skegby Neighbourhood Plan is in accordance with the provisions of European Directive 2001/42/EC as incorporated into United Kingdom law by the Environmental Assessment of Plans and Programmes Regulations 2004.
