Sustainability Appraisal (SA) (including Strategic Environmental Assessment) assesses the significant environmental, social and economic effects of the Local Plan, the "reasonable" alternatives to the Plan's strategy, policies and proposals; and the reasons for discounting alternatives. Mitigation is proposed to avoid, minimise and compensate for negative effects and to maximise positive effects.
Parks and gardens are registered in order to identify those sites that are of either special or local interest.
Parks and gardens of Local Historic Interest were identified as part of the Doncaster Unitary Development Plan and were reviewed in 2013.
The Borough of Doncaster contains a rich archaeological and historical heritage reflecting its long history of settlement. In some cases the historic town centres have been continuously occupied since the Roman Period and are a major archaeological resource whilst evidence is growing of the extensive early settlement in the rural areas of the Borough.
If you are planning a development it pays to seek archaeological advice from the Council's advisers, the South Yorkshire Archaeology Service.
