EFFECT OF REVOCATION OF THE 2001 DIRECTION

7. Revoking the 2001 Direction means that the demolition of any building will be development for the purpose of the 1997 Act and will be subject to the relevant planning and EIA requirements.

8. In particular, where a development is listed in Schedule 1 to the EIA Regulations, then PDR do not apply. Where a development is listed in Schedule 2 to the EIA Regulations and meets or exceeds the related threshold or is in a sensitive area (as defined in the EIA Regulations) then PDR do not apply unless a screening opinion or screening direction indicating EIA is not required has been obtained from, either the planning authority or the Scottish Ministers. Further information and guidance on Environmental Impact Assessment is contained in Circular 3/2011.
