How were the sites assessed?

A specific assessment methodology has been used to assess the suitability of the sites identified. We used this, together with your responses to the previous consultations, to prepare the Proposed Major Changes document. The methodology fulfils the role of a Sustainability Appraisal of the Allocations Document.
