Habitats Regulations Appraisal Record.

Executive Summary

The Habitats Regulations Appraisal (HRA) Record documents the findings of the HRA process undertaken to determine whether the Pilot Plan is likely to have a significant effect on a European site, if implemented. Prepared in consultation with Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) and using guidance provided by the Scottish Government and SNH, the HRA Record describes the methodology used in the appraisal process of the pilot Plan, the steps undertaken in considering the Pilot Plan and determining the likelihood of significant (LSE) effects on European sites, and discussion on the findings of the HRA process. It explains that this review of the general and sectoral policies set out in the Plan found that they would have no LSE on any European sites.
