Sustainability Appraisal Scoping Report

Respondent: Save Our Country Spaces

Representation:

This SA Scoping document contains insufficient up to date detail on Air Quality/Health and Wellbeing and fails to make clear the most critical known relationships between them which must be mitigated and dealt with. The SA Scoping document is incomplete and inadequate to reflect current local, regional, national and international concerns and recent legal requirements, measured against Supreme Court Ruling and EU Directive on Air Quality. SOCS see no evidence of IBC/SCC Environmental and Public Health specialist input to this Scoping Exercise. There are now 5 AQMA's in Ipswich. Key documents on air quality and public health are not referenced.

Respondent: Environment Agency

The Water Framework directive (WFD) is mentioned, but not thoroughly considered. The WFD objectives and local RBMP actions should be used to inform the Local Plan making process. The LPA should consider the priorities in the RBMP when developing strategic plans to help deliver WFD objectives. The SA should detail where WFD requirements will have to be met and what actions/mitigation measures
will be required to deliver them.
