AECOM assessment, 2018
The 2016 pre-screening report provided an early indication of whether a more detailed HRA assessment is likely to be required for the Hove Station Neighbourhood Plan.
…From the consideration of the local area, sites and issues, this report concludes that a full HRA screening, or full HRA assessment is not required for the Hove Station Neighbourhood Plan.
This is based on:
• The Vision and Objectives
• The distance of the Hove Station Neighbourhood Area to the Castle Hill SAC
• The conclusion of the HRA Screening for the City Plan Part 1 (Proposed Modifications)
