The purpose of the options definition report (ODR) is to inform the strategic environmental assessment (SEA) by defining each scheme to a reasonable conceptual level of detail. The ODR also informs the wider Feasibility Study by providing estimates of the scheme costs, energy yields, construction programmes and energy costs. The ODR conveys the scheme definitions including possible strategic measures to prevent or reduce the adverse effects of the schemes on environmental and regional receptors and the effects that those measures have on scheme cost, energy yield and energy cost.
