Environmental assessment

Cork City Council conducted the following screening of this draft Climate Change Adaptation Plan:


  • Screening Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA): Under the European Communities (Environmental Assessment of Certain Plans and Programmes) Regulations 2004 (S.I. 435 of 2004 as amended by S.I. 200 of 2011), all plans which are likely to have a significant effect on the environment must undergo screening to determine whether a Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) is required. This draft strategy has been screened for SEA and this screening determined that a full SEA is not required.


  • Screening for Appropriate Assessment (AA): Screening of this draft strategy has been undertaken in accordance with the requirements of Article 6(3) of the EU Habitats Directive (directive 92/43/EEC) and the screening has determined that the Climate Change Adaptation Strategy is not likely to significantly affect Natura 2000 sites (i.e. Special Areas of Conservation (SAC) and Special Protection Areas (SPA)) within or surrounding the plan area.


These are presented in detail in Appendix E and Appendix F respectively.
