SEA and HRA Screening Decision
In some circumstances neighbourhood plans may require environmental assessments in line with European obligations. These environmental assessments are a ‘Strategic Environment Assessment’ (SEA) and a ‘Habitats Regulation Assessment’ (HRA).
Winkfield Parish Council provided information on the scope of their Neighbourhood Plan to Bracknell Forest Council to determine whether a SEA or HRA is required. This is known as ‘screening’.
Bracknell Forest Council’s screening decision was subject to a 5-week consultation with Historic England, Natural England and the Environment Agency. The screening decision concludes that the Winkfield Neighbourhood Plan requires an SEA and a HRA.
