1. Introduction

Representation ID: 4136

Received: 29/10/2015

Respondent: Equality And Human Rights Commission

Representation Summary:

Local Councils and other public authorities have obligations under the Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED) in the Equality Act 2010 to consider the effect of their policies and decisions on people sharing particular protected characteristics. We provide advice for public authorities on how to apply the PSED, which is an on-going legal obligation and must be complied with as part of the planning process. Thus, the PSED is the mechanism through which public authorities involved in the planning process should consider the potential for planning proposals to have an impact on equality for different groups of people.
