LINK provided written and oral evidence at Stage 1 of the Regulatory Reform (Scotland) Bill. We support regulatory reform that integrates and streamlines regulation while affording environmental protection. A healthy, functioning and well-protected natural environment is an essential prerequisite for a sustainable economy and for the wellbeing of society. However, LINK expressed concern at the outset that the proposed sustainable economic growth duty for regulators is confused and could compromise environmental protection. This briefing outlines LINK’s views on amendments tabled at Stage 3 of the Bill. We focus on the amendments that are relevant to LINK’s priorities.
