The Historic Environment Strategy for Scotland – Environmental Report 2022

Front cover of the Historic Environment Strategy for Scotland - Environmental Report

The purpose of Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) is to ensure that information on the environmental effects of a plan, programme or policy are gathered and made available to plan-makers and decision takers as it is prepared and implemented.

The overarching aim of SEA is to provide a high level of protection for the environment, to reduce environmental impact and to enhance environmental outcomes. It also ensures that policies and proposals are informed by relevant environmental information and provides further opportunities for people to get involved in the process. 

The Environmental Report for the development of the new Historic Environment Strategy for Scotland is being published for comment alongside the strategy draft.
