The EU's Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) Directive, which came into force in July 2004, aims to integrate environmental decisions into the planning process with the aim of promoting sustainable development. Various plans and programmes will require a SEA and English Heritage is one of the statutory consultees. English Heritage has worked with the Environment Agency, English Nature and the Countryside Agency to draw up some joint guidelines entitled 'SEA- Consultation Bodies' Services and Standards for Responsible Authorities'.
