Dalton Barracks Supplementary Planning Document (SPD)

Public Consultation on the Dalton Barracks Strategic Allocation Draft SPD

A public consultation on the Dalton Barracks Strategic Allocation Draft SPD ran from Thursday 21st October to Thursday 18th November 2021.

The Draft SPD can be viewed here: Dalton Barracks Strategic Allocation Draft Supplementary Planning Document .

Some frequently asked questions were also produced to address the Strategic Allocation and Draft SPD.

Supporting Documents

In accordance with the Environmental Assessment of Plans and Programmes Regulations (2004) the Council prepared a Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) screening statement to determine whether the Dalton Barracks SPD should be subject to further SEA.  The report also considered whether the document would need to be subject to Habitat Regulations Assessment (HRA).

We prepared a screening opinion report and consulted on this with the three statutory bodies; the Environment Agency, Historic England and Natural England between 6 September and 11 October 2021. The Council considered that further SEA and HRA were not necessary, and the three statutory bodies did not challenge this position. The Environment Agency did not respond to this consultation, but the responses from Historic England and Natural England are available to view in Appendix two of the screening report. 

The Council’s final screening statement is published below.

What Happens Next?

Now that the consultation period has concluded, we will review all comments and prepare a Consultation Statement summarising the main issues and how we have addressed them in an updated final version of the SPD. The SPD is expected to be considered for adoption in early 2022. Please bear in mind there will be a range of opinions for us to take into account, so your views might not be reflected in the final SPD.
