Activity: Other activity typesPublic engagement and outreach - media article or participation


The Scottish Government has published its Consultation on Environmental Principles and Governance in Scotland, setting out proposals for the status of environmental principles in Scotland and options for monitoring performance, considering complaints and enforcing the law. Compared to Defra’s initial proposals on this subject, now further developed in the Draft Environment Bill, the paper is much more open on possible ways forward and places environmental matters more firmly in the wider context of other policy and governance frameworks.
