Hello, I would be interested to learn who, within your local
authority, prepares a HRA Screening Assessment for Neighbourhood
Plans. We do not have any in-house expertise to draw upon (i.e. any
ecological resource) but are also mindful of the costs asssociated
with outsourcing such work. Many thanks.
We are in a two tier authority area and use our County ecologist to
prepare HRA screening reports for development plan work (both Local
Plans and Neighbourhood Plans). We do however have a service level
agreement with them to provide these services to our planning functions.
