Consultation was carried out in December 2017 ahead of submission of the IAMP ONE planning application.  The Consultation Report which sets out how we consulted on IAMP ONE can be viewed here.

Following submission of the planning application, Sunderland City Council also conducted its own statutory consultation with comments being taken into account as part of its consideration of the planning application.

Details of all Reserved matters application submitted to Sunderland City Council as IAMP ONE is brought forward are available for view on the website of the City Council at https://www.sunderland.gov.uk/planning-applications

Details of the IAMP ONE Phase 2 application, due to be submitted later in 2019, will also be available for review on the website of the City Council alongside details of how comments can be made.


An earlier phase of consultation was carried out relating to the full IAMP site (including both IAMP ONE and IAMP TWO) between November 2016 and January 2017.  A set of documents were published for review including:-

  • Preliminary environmental information - A technical report that looked at the likely environmental impacts of the development and the plan at that time to address them.  It included considerations such as transport, landscaping, local wildlife and air quality.
  • A consultation summary document - An short document providing a general overview of the IAMP and the technical work carried out to that point.
  • Event materials - Information boards, maps and diagrams that were made available online and at several consultation events that took place in the local area. 
  • Draft masterplan - An image that provides an indication of how the site could look.

On 13 February 2017 we published an Interim Consultation Report.  The Report provided a summary of the Stage 1 Consultation and an overview of the feedback we received.  It also outlined how the views expressed would help to shape the Project, including on-going design work and environmental assessments.

Appendices - The appendices that support the ICR are organised into two volumes. To download them click here and here.  Please note the appendices are organised into folders containing individual files which, due to the file sizes, may take a while to download.

Since then, the team has continued consulting with a range of statutory and non-statutory consultees to assist in the ongoing development of the project.  The outcomes from these discussions, and the earlier consultation, has informed the form of the proposal that is the subject of consultation in the Spring of 2019.
