Q16. Please give us any views you have on the content of these partial BRIA and EQIA/CRWIA.


Q17. Do you have or can you direct us to any information that would assist in finalising the BRIA and EQIA/ CRWIA?

Q18. Please give us your views on the Island Communities Impact Assessment screening paper and our conclusion that a full assessment is not required.


Q19. If you consider that a full Island Communities Impact Assessment is required, please suggest any information sources that could help inform that assessment.
