The research was commissioned to support the Scottish Environment Protection Agency’s (SEPA) objective of ensuring the effective involvement of interested parties in regulatory decision making. In particular, the research was undertaken to investigate the differences in public involvement across the different regulatory regimes and to what extent consistent approaches could be adopted whilst still meeting legislative requirements.
