National litter and flytipping consultation: equality impact assessment

Equality impact assessment (EQIA) for the proposed actions for the National and Litter Flytipping Strategy.


Stage 3: Assessing the quality of the impacts and identifying opportunities to promote equality

At this stage of the partial equality impact assessment, the qualitative scoring of the potential impacts (negative, positive and neutral) has been considered for each of the protected characteristics. This qualitative scoring has been undertaken using the data and evidence available and gathered to date. This is a preliminary and indicative assessment of the potential impacts and may be revised after the consultation has taken place and as the strategy develops.
