Environmental Authorisations (Scotland) Regulations 2018: process for considering third party representations

Ministers are keen to ensure communities are engaged in environmental decision-making, and this policy statement sets out the circumstances under which third parties may ask Ministers to determine EAR applications.

5. Conclusions

We wish to ensure that there is a transparent process by which third parties can make representations to SEPA and to Ministers, and by which these may be considered.

This Policy Statement describes how SEPA will take third party representations into account in making its determination of an application for authorisation, variation or surrender; and sets out the circumstances under which Ministers may choose to call in such an application for their own determination.
