7. Pre-screening for the Strategic Environmental Assessment
7.1 This is a pre-screening notification with regard to whether a full Strategic Environmental Assessment is required.
7.2 It is our view that the new powers being consulted on would have no impact on most environmental receptors. Receptors such as human health, population and material assets, which are likely to experience some positive effects from these new powers, are still considered to be safely within the minimal threshold and therefore exempt from Strategic Environmental Assessment as per Section 7 of the Environmental Assessment (Scotland) Act 2005.
