Equalities and Human Rights Impact Assessment
This is the first stage of the Equality and Human Rights Impact Assessment. Further assessment of equalities and human right implications will be carried out as a continual process in the preparation of the Strategic Growth Plan. This will be in the form of Equality Impact Assessments/Equality & Human Rights Impact Assessments which will be produced for different aspects of the Strategic Growth Plan and consulted upon at different stages.
This document explains what steps have been taken to understand the potential implications of planning policies on those in our community with the protected characteristics, what steps have been taken to address any differential impacts upon each of the characteristics and human rights articles, and draws upon any recommendations and conclusions.
