Ceased dataset: Self assessment matrices on Planning to adapt to climate change

Department: Collected by local authorities, reported to DEFRA

Date ceased: Ceased in 2010-15 (source).

Official reason given: "Letter to chief execs 11/11/10. We have concluded that whilst local authorities may wish to continue to collect the self assessment data for their own adaptation purposes, they should no longer be required to report the data to central Government. We will not, therefore, require authorities to submit Year 3 self-assessment matrices at the end of this financial year; but we would be happy to hear about the further progress you are making on adaptation."
