Arbitrary and insufficient criteria have been used in making sustainability assessments. Weight has not been accorded to different elements of sustainability in a proper manner. Undue prominence has been given to objectives of reducing car travel, and the supposed effectiveness of "command" economic policies. Important elements of the Sustainable Community Strategy, such as the priorities for local food strategies and local food business development, have not been considered or properly conside

There is much with which CPRE is in agreement, starting with the principle of delivering sufficient jobs and homes whilst conserving natural and built environment, minimising need to travel and "addressing climate change" (para 1.16). Problems occur over definitions of what might be sufficient in existing and foreseen economic conditions.

The Sustainability Appraisal is fundamentally flawed. The assessment of reasonable alternatives is incomplete and partisan. The scoring of various topic areas for identified areas of growth does not withstand even the most basic testing on an objective basis. It is legally invalid and the process does not conform to good practice.

The Sustainability Appraisal is incomplete. It has paid little consideration to the natural environment and failed to include merits of using and improving existing rivers as potential means for transport routes.

I challenge the statement "minimising the need to travel", I believe that this should instead read "minimising travel by non-sustainable means". In modern communities it would be possible not to travel- to use a roving library, paying for council tax online, meeting with friends via skype, and only venturing out for essential needs- but this is not a healthy attitude.
