Disproportionate burden assessment for Draft Biodiversity Supplementary Planning Document
ScopeThe Local Plan Committee has agreed to publish the draft Biodiversity Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) for public consultation. It is a statutory requirement that SPDs are published on the council's website during the consultation period. The SEA/HRA screening opinion is also published on the website for transparency.
Benefits of creating an accessible versionThe benefits of creating a HTML version of this PDF would be:
- A fully accessible version for all users to access
- An easily searchable and indexable version
Burden placed on the organisationWe have estimated that it would take a disproportionate amount of a content designer's time to create a HTML version of these PDFs.
Contributing factorsOther factors relevant to this decision are:
- The SPD will be available in a HTML format through the council's online consultation portal.
- We will continue to assist with accessible versions on request.
Having considered the estimated effort involved in creating an accessible version, along with the low estimated demand, we have concluded that the work involved would be a poor use of staff time. This represents a disproportionate burden on the organisation.
