The Council is assessing the potential equality impact which the proposals may have and are undertaking full Equality Impact Assessments (EIAs) where this is appropriate.The EIAs are draft working documents which are to be developed over time. 

This means that as further detail becomes available through the consultation process the EIAs  will be updated and finalised before a final decision is reached.
