Policy & Guidance
Scottish Natural Heritage engages in policy development to advise Government, to guide our own work, and to respond to changing circumstances. We need to keep up-to-date our approach towards a wide range of issues which have a bearing on the natural heritage, and the ways it is used. We participate in policy development by
- responding to consultations;
- delivering advice sought by Ministers;
- working jointly with other parties with an interest in the topic; or
- a combination of these.
Where changes in approach are proposed, we normally aim to consult widely among those likely to be affected.
