Habitats Regulation Appraisal
SEPA undertook a habitats regulation appraisal to ensure that the flood risk management plans would not have negative impacts on internationally important nature conservation sites. SEPA has added statements within the flood risk management plans to explain how any negative impacts will be avoided. SEPA consulted NatureScot and took its views into account.
