1 Submission City Plan Part One June 2013 Compliance Self Assessment Checklist

2 Local Plan Compliance Checklist (April 2013) This checklist has been updated for PAS by SNR Denton. It supersedes the previous checklist and is based on Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) (Amendment) s It should be used with the Soundness Self Assessment Checklist (also updated January 2013). Remember that the evidence you provide to support your plan should be relevant and proportionate. Please don t use this checklist as a reason to assemble more than is needed. Glossary: "Act" means the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 (as amended) "NPPF" means the National Planning Policy Framework published March 2012 "s" means the Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) (Amendment) s 2012 LDS means Local Development Scheme SCI means Statement of Community Involvement DPD means Development Plan Document Stage one: The early stages Where the possible evidence column refers to a document that will not be complete until a later stage (for example, the sustainability appraisal report), that will contribute to that report are relevant at the earlier stages. This way, the submitted report provides the evidence at submission, with an audit trail back to its source. In terms of legal compliance, the main issues for the early stage are in relation to: planning for community engagement planning the sustainability appraisal (including consultation with the statutory environment consultation bodies) identifying significant cross boundary and inter-authority issues ensuring that the plan rests on a credible evidence base, including meeting the Act s for keeping matters affecting the development of the area under review. 17 that a statement setting out which bodies and people the council invited to make representations under 18 is one of the proposed submission. In this tool, the term consultation statement is used to describe this statement. 1

3 Section 33A of the Act (introduced by the Localism Act 2011) introduces a duty to cooperate as a mechanism to ensure that local planning authorities and other bodies engage with each other on issues which are likely to have a significant effect on more than one planning area. This pervades every stage of the plan preparation. A plan may be found unsound if a council cannot show that it has taken reasonable steps to comply with the duty. 2

The Council has been in continued dialogue with the Environment Agency, Natural England, English Heritage and the Highways Authority. This is detailed in the various Consultation Statements. Furthermore, infrastructure providers were consulted in the preparation of a key background paper that informed the formulation of policy the Brighton and Hove Infrastructure Capacity Assessment: Final Report June 2006 (http://www.brightonhove.gov.uk/downloads/bhcc/local_plan_2005/brighton_and_hov e_infrastructure_assessment_ pdf ) and consultation took place with infrastructure service providers in 2010 to inform Infrastructure Delivery Plan for the Submission Core Strategy version in 2010 and again in February 2012 to inform the draft City Plan. 4.

Sustainability appraisal report informed the development of preferred options and consideration of alternative options. At Preferred Options stage, the SA findings helped to determine the most sustainable approach for growth in the city, through the assessment of options for growth, and this fed into the development of the Spatial Strategy for the city. At both Core Strategy Preferred Options and Revised Preferred Options stages, the SA process was used in the development of some options, as well as in determining which option was the most sustainable approach for emerging policies, thus helping to reject less sustainable alternatives. At Core Strategy Proposed Amendments Paper and Submission stages, the SA helped to refine the emerging and final policies further through recommendations for changes to policy text, thus helping to improve the overall sustainability of the Plan. Following withdrawal of the Core Strategy, at City Plan Policy Options stage, the SA process was used to reject less sustainable options, and particularly at this stage, helped to show how the competing land use and development s of the city need to be balanced against each other. At draft City Plan and Proposed Submission City Plan stages, the SA helped to refine the policies improving their sustainability where possible from previous iterations through recommendations arising from the assessments. The SA findings at this stage were also used to help determine some of the monitoring indicators to be used to evaluate the impacts of implementing the Plan See - Brighton & Hove Submission City Plan Part 1- Statement on the difference made by the Sustainability Appraisal and Health 15

Over 120 people attended these events. Aside from these larger meetings, smaller meetings took place with partnerships, Local Action Teams and residents groups and organisations. The draft City Plan was also discussed at a number of existing planned meetings for example the Conservation Advisory Board and the Brighton and Hove Federation of Disabled People. A leaflet drop was undertaken to alert residents in the Hangleton area to the draft City Plan proposals for Toads Hole Valley. The leaflet was distributed to around 3,500 households and invited residents to two drop in 17

This informed the development of the implementation and monitoring framework set out in the Revised Preferred Options Document which led to Annexe 1 Implementation and Monitoring of the Core Strategy set out in the Submission Core Strategy and then revised and updated to become Annexe 1 of the City Plan Part 1. On adoption of the City Plan Part 1, Annexe 1 will be incorporated in the AMR to be used to monitor the effects of the City Plan. 20

22 Stage three: Plan preparation - formulation phase This stage has many legal matters, for process and content, to address. The council should be beginning to formulate the preferred strategy for the local plan or supplementary planning document with which the council chooses to address 18 s, using the information gathered and previous collaborative work with stakeholders. Para 182 of the NPPF makes it clear that explicit consideration of alternatives is a key part of the plan making process. You should evaluate the reasonable alternatives identified in stage two: frontloading phase plan preparation phase against the: completed body of information from evidence gathering results of sustainability appraisal findings from community participation findings from engagement with statutory cooperation bodies. This may be written up as a preferred strategy report. The results of participation on the preferred strategy and an accompanying sustainability report will enable the council to gauge the community s response and receive additional evidence about the options. The council can then decide whether, and how, the preferred strategy and policies should be changed for publishing the finished DPD. Alternatives developed from the evidence and engagement during the frontloading stage need to be appraised to decide on the preferred strategy. Participation will also need to be carried out on it. These matters need to be considered, and dealt with, in good time, and not left until publication. Supporting will assist in providing evidence that decisions on alternatives and strategy are soundly based. These will, in due course, become part of the proposed submission in stage four. The council should tell all parties that this is the main participation opportunity on the emerging plan. The publication stage will not be a participation or consultation process. The publication stage is a formal opportunity for anyone to comment on an aspect of the DPD s soundness. The more effectively this message is put across, the lower the chance of late changes being brought forward following publication. 21

23 Stage three: Plan preparation writing the plan 1. Are you preparing reasonable alternatives for evaluation during the preparation of the DPD? Statutory 12 (2) of The Environmental Assessment of Plans and Programmes s 2004 No NPPF paras SEA Guide, Chapter 5 The sustainability appraisal report and supporting relevant to the preparation of the DPD are part of the proposed submission (see 17). Possible evidence Documents supporting decisions on alternatives and any preferred strategy Core Strategy The Preferred Options Core Strategy Preferred Options Document [PDF 2.94mb] sets out how the findings from the issues and options consultation along with the key issues that arose from the evidence base and the sustainability appraisal informed the development of preferred options and consideration of alternative options. At Preferred Options stage, the SA findings helped to determine the most sustainable approach for growth in the city, through the assessment of options for growth, and this fed into the development of the Spatial Strategy for the city. At both Core Strategy Preferred Options and Revised Preferred Options stages, the SA process was used in the development of some options, as well as in determining which option was the most sustainable approach for emerging policies, thus helping to reject less sustainable alternatives. At Core Strategy Proposed Amendments Paper and Submission stages, the SA helped to refine the emerging and final policies further through recommendations for changes to policy text, thus helping to improve the overall sustainability of the Plan. City Plan Following withdrawal of the Core Strategy, at City Plan Policy Options stage, issues and options papers were produced for areas of the city plan where significant change in policy approach was required. Various options were considered for evaluation and consultation. The SA 22

At draft City Plan and Proposed Submission City Plan stages, the SA helped to refine the policies improving their sustainability where possible from previous iterations through recommendations arising from the assessments. The SA findings at this stage were also used to help determine some of the monitoring indicators to be used to evaluate the impacts of implementing the Plan. See - Brighton & Hove Submission City Plan Part 1- Statement on the difference made by the Sustainability Appraisal and Health and Equalities Impact Assessment June Have you assessed alternatives against: consistency with national policy? general conformity with the regional spatial section19 (2), section 24 NPPF para 151 For London boroughs and local authorities where regional strategies are still in force general conformity is tested formally later but you need i.
