Publication of Consultation Responses

The National Planning Framework 2: Discussion Draft and accompanying documents were issued on
8th J
anuary 2008 for a 14 week consultation. The consultation period closed on 15th April 2008.
Around 250

consultation responses were received. All non

now

www.scotland.gov.uk/Publications/2008/08/07154949/0

Strategic Environmental Assessm
ent


Supplementary Assessment o
f Candidate National
Developments

In accordance with the Environme
ntal Assessment (Scotland) Act 2005, a Strategic

Environmental
Assessment (SEA):

Environmental Report was produced in January 2008, which described the
anticipated environmental effects of the

strategy set out in the

Discussion Draft.

Since then, numerou
s opportunities, ideas and proposals for other National Developments have been
put forward by stakeholders, including members of the public. The environmental effects of these
Candidate National Developments are now being considered as part of the SEA.



The Report setting out the findings from this part of the process can be viewed on the NPF webpage
and on the consultation pages of the Scottish Government website at
http://www.sco
tland.gov.uk/Publications/2008/09/17124524/0
. Opinions on the findings of the report
would be most welcome.
Written responses to the consultation paper should be submitted by 31
October 2008.


No final conclusions on the merits or otherwise of these sugg
ested National Developments have
been drawn at this stage. The presence of any Candidate National Development within the
report does not indicate any commitment by the Scottish Government.

Next Steps

The National Planning Framework team
is

busy making r
evisions to the Framework in light of the

consultation responses
received. An
Analysis Report
of the consultation responses
will be published
on the NPF webpage for public information
later
in the Autumn
.
The Proposed National Planning

Framework
will

be
laid before
the Scottish
Parliament for 60 days scrutiny

later in the Autumn
.

It is
expected that
the
final version of the National Planning Framework 2 will be published early in 2009.
