Scottish Government’s discussion paper on an Environment Strategy for Scotland is now live. It takes forward the commitment in the 2017/18 Programme for Government to develop a strategic approach on environmental policy to protect and enhance our environment, safeguard natural capital and continue Scotland’s leading role in addressing environmental challenges. It notes that “Improving air quality and access to greenspace is a particular priority in more deprived urban areas, helping to tackle inequalities and improve the health, wellbeing and confidence of people and communities”. The Strategy sets out a draft vision of “one planet prosperity” and seeks views on six draft outcomes to achieve that vision. The consultation closes on 24 August 2018 and can be viewed here.
