What is the checklist?
Not every question in the checklist has to be answered. The checklist has been set up as a prompt to encourage you to think about questions to incorporate sustainability that you may not have already considered. Some questions may not be appropriate or relevant or may simply take time that you do not have available to you - these can be left unanswered.
How is information within the checklist presented?
These sections, like the matrix, follow a similar format to the Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) to prevent duplication of work if an SEA is required for a plan, programme or policy.
How do I use the checklist?
On clicking on a question you are presented with two data entry boxes.
Click on the update question to register the response.
When a response has been entered into the answer box the red light next to the question in the list will turn green. This will enable you to identify aspects that may be neglected.
Please note - Not all questions will be applicable to every project due to the project type, size or the stage of the project. Therefore it is expected that the completed PETUS checklist will be composed of green and red lights.
A copy of the questions answered can be printed out by clicking on "print checklist" button at the top of the page.
