Fireworks Secondary Legislation: screening determination – 29 January 2021

Dear The SEA Gateway

Environmental Assessment (Scotland) Act 2005: Section 8(1) Screening

Fireworks Secondary Legislation

Statement – Screening Determination

I refer to the screening report prepared for the Fireworks Secondary Legislation, which was submitted to the SEA Gateway on 21/12/2020.  Responses from the Consultation Authorities were received on 18/01/2021, whose overall opinion confirmed there is a no likelihood of significant environmental effects.

I am writing on behalf of the Directorate for Safer Communities to confirm that the Scottish Government has determined, using the criteria set out in Schedule 2 of the Environmental Assessment (Scotland) Act 2005, that the Fireworks Secondary Legislation is not likely to have significant environmental effects.  A Strategic Environmental Assessment is therefore not required.

I enclose a copy of the determination advert which will be placed in The Herald and Edinburgh Gazette. I would be grateful if you could forward this to the SEA Consultation Authorities.

Please do not hesitate to contact me should you require any further information.

Yours sincerely,

Eilidh Smith
