A Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) of the Draft Policy Statement has been undertaken under the Environmental Assessment (Scotland) Act 2005. This Non-Technical Summary describes the content of the Environmental Report that has been produced as a result of the SEA process. It includes a description of the significant environmental effects expected as a result of these proposed policies, and other relevant environmental information. Along with the Draft Policy Statement, the Environmental Report is open for public consultation.
Responses to the questions posed in Section 7 of the SEA are invited by 9 June 2014.
