Strategic Environmental Assessment

The objective of the Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) is to assess the potential environmental impact of the Belfast Agenda, the city’s first community plan. 

In accordance with the Environmental Assessment of Plans and Programmes Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2004, the SEA aims to ensure that the protection of the environment and the promotion of sustainable development are integrated within the Belfast Agenda. 

This decision to carry out an SEA was confirmed in the Determination Response from the Consultation Authority, the Northern Ireland Environment Agency on 21 November 2016. 

The Belfast Agenda sets out a high level framework including a long-term vision for Belfast, quality of life outcomes and the ambitions we want to achieve by 2035; and the priorities we should be focusing on over the next four years. 

The Belfast Agenda is an overarching plan and links to the Local Development Plan (LDP). We are preparing a Sustainability Appraisal incorporating SEA for LDP. Therefore we have taken a high level strategic approach for the SEA to the preparation for the Belfast Agenda.

Copies of the Strategic Environmental Assessment, its appendices, Screening Report and the Determination Response are available to be downloaded:
