The Environmental Assessment (Scotland) Act 2005 requires NatureScot’s own Plans Programmes and Strategies, that have significant effects on the environment, to be subject to Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA). NatureScot has therefore undertaken SEA Screening and determination during our preparations for the Orkney Native Wildlife Project.
Notice is hereby given that NatureScot, after consultation with the consultation authorities, has made a determination under Section 8(1) of the Environmental Assessment (Scotland) Act 2005 the Orkney Native Wildlife Project is likely to lead to significant environmental effects. Therefore, the project will be subject to a Strategic Environmental Assessment.
