S5W-11617: Mark Ruskell (Mid Scotland and Fife)

Scottish Green Party

Date lodged: 28 September 2017

To ask the Scottish Government whether localĀ and rural growth deals will be subject to a Strategic Environmental Assessment, and what the reasons are for its position on this matter.

Answered by: Keith Brown 24 October 2017

Agreement of a deal does not circumvent any statutory requirements and we expect local authorities to take this into account.
