adobe icon SEA Addendum [591kb]


The requirement for the SEA Addendum follows review of the SMP and appendices by the national SMP Quality Review Group (QRG). QRG comments on the draft SMP required revisions to some sections of the SEA Environmental Report (ER). The Addendum provides the additional information and analysis requested by the QRP. It is important to note that this SEA Addendum has been based on the draft SMP prior to public consultation. The SEA regulations require that SEA ERs are consulted on widely to provide transparency of assessment and maximize SEA effectiveness. The original SEA ER was subject to a three-month public consultation alongside substantive SMP2 documentation. This SEA ER Addendum was subject to consultation for a period of three weeks targeted at the North Solent Environmental sub-group, statutory consultees and those stakeholders that provided comments on the original SEA ER.

Consultation Report

A Quality Review Group (QRG) was established to undertake a review of all Shoreline Management Plans, during their development, against certain criteria. All queries raised from the QRG and Client steering Group were recorded in spreadsheets. Some queries and responses led to changes to the Shoreline Management Plan itself.
