Questions

What are your views on the accuracy and scope of the information used to describe the SEA environmental baseline set out in the Environmental Report?

What are your views on the predicted environmental effects as set out in the Environmental Report?

What are your views on the ‘reasonable alternatives’ outlined in the Environmental Report? Please provide any other ‘reasonable alternatives’ which you think should be considered.

What are your views on the findings of the SEA and the proposals for mitigation and monitoring of the environmental effects set out in the Environmental Report?

Do you have any views on the proposals contained within the Scottish Government’s preferred policy position statement? There is no need to restate views already expressed in relation to the Talking “Fracking” public consultation as these have been, and will continue to be, taken into account as we move towards finalising the Scottish Government’s policy position.

What are your views on the opportunities and challenges that each of the 3 options set out in the partial BRIA could have for businesses?
