Annex C: Equalities Assessment
1. The public sector equality duties for race, gender and disability require the Scottish Government to assess the equality impacts of its policies. Equality impact assessment is all about considering how the policy may impact, either positively or negatively, on different sectors of the population in different ways.
2. This policy has been so assessed. The proposal relates to the relaxation of planning control over permissible changes to installed equipment and farmed shellfish species. The beneficial exercise of the policy does not depend on, derive from or is otherwise affected by, personal attribute or belief.
