Safeguarding Scotland's Resources, A Programme for the Efficient Use of Our Materials

Consultation on a programme to encourage the sustainable use of our resources, to support both the environment and economy.

Proposals for an Integrated Framework of Environmental Regulation

The proposals outlined in this consultation will deliver a simpler legislative framework which will enable SEPA to focus greatest effort on the environmental problems that matter most. It will provide a more consistent range of enforcement tools so that, proportionate and effective action can be taken against those who would damage the environment.
