The SEA Screening Report sets out the Council’s determination and includes a statement of the reasons for reaching that determination. 



Selston Parish Council and Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group have prepared a proposed Neighbourhood Plan, which has been submitted to Ashfield District Council in accordance with Regulation 15 of the Town and Country Planning England Neighbour Planning (General) Regulations 2012, as amended.
