Sectoral Marine Plan for Offshore Wind Energy Encompassing Deep Water Options – Strategic Environmental Assessment Screening and Scoping report

Executive Summary

The Strategic Environmental Assessment Screening and Scoping report sets out the proposed scope and level of detail for the assessment, a description of the methodology that may be used in the assessment and a summary of the information that is likely to underlie the compilation of the environmental baseline.

The report concludes that the Draft Plan for identifying areas of search for offshore wind development in Scotland is likely to give rise to significant environmental effects, and as such, a full SEA is required. The views of the Consultation Authorities and UK consultation bodies are now sought, as required under the 2005 Act and the 2004 Regulations.
