SEA for Bray Town Development Plan


SEA for Bray Town Development Plan 2011 - 2017

Bray Town Council

RPS completed the preparation of the Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) for the Bray Town Development Plan (2011- 2017).

The Development Plan sets out an overall strategy for the proper planning and sustainable development of the administrative area of Bray Town Council for the period 2011 to 2017. The main site of interest for Bray includes Bray Head, which is designated as a Special Area of Conservation (SAC). The area has been covered by a Special Amenity Area Order (SAAO) since 2007.

The SEA recognised the potential for indirect impacts to Bray Head and recommended that guidelines be drafted as part of the SAAO Management Plan to ensure that development in the area, particularly along the nearby seafront, did not result in indirect impacts to the SAC.
