The scoping report is the first step of the draft integrated sustainability appraisal (ISA) for the NDF.

We are preparing a national land use plan, the National Development Framework, which will set a direction for the whole planning system and inform decisions made nationally, regionally and locally.

The NDF will influence how communities develop over the next 20 years and it is important that we have a comprehensive understanding of the positive and adverse effects this can have as we develop the NDF.

To do this, we have developed an Integrated Sustainability Appraisal (ISA) which is a process for assessing the social, economic and environmental impacts of a plan and aims to ensure that sustainable development is at the heart of the plan-making process. The scoping report is the first step of the draft integrated sustainability appraisal (ISA) for the NDF.
