Consultation description

As part of its stated commitment to protecting the environment the government decided to carry out an environmental assessment of the revocation of the existing regional strategies, on a voluntary basis. It is the government’s clear policy intention to revoke existing regional strategies outside London, but this is subject to the outcome of environmental assessments and will not be undertaken until the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government and Parliament have had the opportunity to consider the findings of the assessments.

The regional strategy whose revocation is proposed is the Regional Planning Guidance for the South West (RPG 10), published in September 2001. The environmental report on the revocation of the regional planning guidance for the south west (RPG 10) is available below.
