The full SA report is a public document and its purpose is to show how the sustainability considerations are integrated into preparing the LDP. The SA report is also intended to allow readers of the plan an idea of how effective the LDP might be in delivering more sustainable development, and where there might be adverse impacts Where potential negative effects are identified the SA then makes recommendations for how the LDP can be modified, or controls put on development, to avoid or mitigate against these. This is part of a process where successive stages of the emerging LDP are appraised and findings fed into the next stage of plan preparation.
