Results Updated 21 Dec 2016

In September 2016 we consulted on the Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) Scoping Report for the Leicester Integrated Flood Risk Management Strategy (IFRMS).  The document below gives an outline of the responses we received and how we have considered them to help inform the SEA and the emerging strategy.  


Published Responses

Strategic environmental assessments (SEA) aim to ensure that environmental and possibly other sustainability aspects are considered effectively in policy, plan and programme making. This scoping document establishes which environmental criteria need to be included and assessed as part of Leicester Integrated Flood Risk Management Strategy (IFRMS). Once consulted upon, the agreed criteria will be assessed and included in the final Environmental Report, which summarises whether the Leicester IFRMS will have a positive or negative environmental impact.

More information about this consultation can be found in the related documents section below.

Why We Are Consulting

The SEA process is designed to be transparent through consultation. In order to ensure that we have covered all the potential impacts, we are seeking the views of organisations, interest groups and members of the public. We will review these comments and use them to confirm the assessment criteria for the assessment and mitigation process of the SEA.

What Happens Next

The responses will be used to confirm the assessment criteria for the Environmental Report.  We will also use the information provided to confirm that we have considered all relevant local plans and strategies.  The responses will also ensure that our proposed work considers those plans and compliments their objectives where possible. Any information about possible environmental enhancements to deliver local plan objectives will also be taken into consideration within the strategy.

We will collate responses and issue a response document by the 31st December 2016.
