Strategic Environmental Assessment

European and UK legislation require that the Local Strategy is subject to a Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA), a process that considers the effects of plans on the environment. Government guidance outlines a number of stages of SEA work that need to be carried out as the Local Strategy is being prepared:

  • Stage A: Setting Context & Scope
  • Stage B: Developing Options & Assessing Effects
  • Stage C: Preparing the Environmental Report
  • Stage D: Consulting on the Plan & the Environmental Report
  • Stage E: Monitoring Implementation of the Plan

This document has been prepared for Torfaen County Borough Council (TCBC) as part of the Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) of the TCBC Local Flood Risk Management Strategy (Local Strategy). It has been produced in compliance with the SEA Regulations and as required by the SEA Directive. The purpose of the Environmental Report is to identify, evaluate and present information on the likely significant effects of the Local Strategy. It also allows the consultation bodies, the public and any other interested parties the opportunity to offer views on the SEA.
