STRATEGIC ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT (SEA)
11. The GPDO was considered under the Environmental Assessment (Scotland) Act 2005 in order to identify if a Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) was required. A screening process was undertaken in consultation with SEPA, Historic Scotland and Scottish Natural Heritage after which it was determined and advertised that the GPDO would not have significant environmental effects and an SEA was not required.
Q1. Are there any costs or benefits not identified in the draft BRIA?
Q2. Do you have any information or can you suggest sources of relevant information on the costs and/or benefits detailed in the BRIA?
Q3. We would appreciate your assessment of the potential equalities impact our proposals may have on different sectors of the population. A partial EqIA is attached to this consultation at Annex 3 for your comment and feedback
