    Dear Sir/Madam
    WHAT DO YOU THINK OF OUR PLANNING CONSULTATION?
    We have consulted on many planning applications and planning policy documents over the last year. We would like your views on whether you are satisfied with how we have involved you in this process.  As part of our Annual Monitoring Report we will then provide feedback on how local residents, developers, landowners, community groups and businesses feel about their involvement with planning consultations. This will help us to improve how we consult and involve the community as effectively as possible If you would like to give us your view, please fill in the online questionnaire at:

    AFFORDABLE HOUSING SUPPLEMENTARY PLANNING DOCUMENT AND AFFORDABLE HOUSING PAPER: CONSULTATION ON SUSTAINABILITY APPRAISAL SCOPING REPORT

    We are also currently preparing a new Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) for Affordable Housing and an affordable housing paper. The SPD and affordable housing paper will provide further guidance and information on how the council will provide good quality affordable housing. They will ensure that affordable housing contributes to creating a mix of housing of different tenures and prices throughout the borough. They will be a material consideration in deciding planning applications.

    As part of this process a Sustainability Appraisal (SA) is required. The purpose of the SA and the scoping report is to promote sustainable development. The scoping report is the first stage in the Sustainability Appraisal process and sets out evidence (also known as baseline information) which describes what the borough is like now.  Using the baseline information the scoping report identifies the key sustainability issues that will be addressed in the SPD and paper and identifies the indicators and baseline data which will be used to measure the impact of the SPD and paper on the area in the future.

    The scoping report will be available for comment for five weeks between Friday 17 September and Friday 22 October 2010. You can tell us if you think we need to add other important issues for the borough to the Sustainability Appraisal report.  All comments must be received by 5pm on Friday 22 October 2010.
    The Scoping Report is available to view on the council's website:
