CROFTING COMMISSION POLICY PLAN
The Environmental Assessment (Scotland) Act 2005 (“the Act”)
Screening Determination under Section 8 (1)
We (the Crofting Commission) have prepared a five year policy plan. We have determined under section 8(1) of the Act, following consultation with the Consultation Authorities, that the Crofting Commission Policy Plan is not likely to have significant effects upon the environment. Any environmental effects will be site specific and can be controlled by other more specific agricultural controls and environmental mechanisms. Therefore, the Crofting Commission Policy Plan will not require strategic environmental assessment (SEA). A copy of the Strategic Environmental Assessment Screening Report can be found here.
Details of the Crofting Commission Plan can be found under The Act & Policy.
