Preamble: Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA)
European Directive 2001/42/EC (EC, 2001) requires SEA of a wide range of plans and programmes, including development plans. The objective of the ‘SEA Directive’ is to provide for a high level of protection of the environment and to contribute to the integration of environmental considerations into the preparation and adoption of plans with a view to promoting sustainable development.
The Environmental Report in respect of the SEA of the Draft Plan proposals was published by the Department as a supporting document to the Draft Plan.
The statement in accordance with Regulation 15 of The Environmental Assessment of Plans and Programmes (Northern Ireland) 2004 is published as a supporting document to the adopted Plan.
