Scottish strategic issues

    Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debatepeer-review

    Abstract

    Some of the Scottish strategic plans on environmental issues and concerns are presented. These include better regulation of waste, business waste, household waste prevention, landfill allowance guidance and light pollution. The first issue tackles a joint consultation between Executive and SEPA as to how the complex rules of waste could be streamlined and made more user-friendly. Another is the production of a framework for the management of business waste, along with an action plan detailing current and future activities. Also, the executive has produced a 20 point action plan on reducing household waste. The executive has also issued guidance on the Landfill Allowances Scheme Regulations 2005 and on lighting installations including how to avoid obstructive light and thereby a potential nuisance.
