Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 4 December 2018

To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S5W-19894 by Mairi Gougeon on 27 November 2018, which other organisations are involved in the development of the Sea Eagle Action Plan; when the plan will be publicly available, and whether there will be any consultations on the plan other than with those involved in its development.

Answered by: Mairi Gougeon 10 January 2019

In addition to the partners referred to in the answer to S5W-19894, the Scottish Crofters Federation, Forestry Commission Scotland and the Scottish Rural Colleges are also involved in the development of the Sea Eagle Action Plan.

The plan is a working document being developed and used by stakeholders to inform their work on the project. It has been shared amongst members of each stakeholder organisation and can be made available to other stakeholders wishing to be involved in sea eagle management if they contact Scottish Natural Heritage.

The stakeholder group is also planning to publicise its work through the development of a question and answer document which will cover the main actions being delivered through the plan. This document is expected be published in Spring 2019 and will be available on the Scottish Natural Heritage website.

There are no plans to consult formally beyond the stakeholder group. However, anyone who is interested in the plan is welcome to contribute their thoughts to any of the stakeholder bodies represented on the group.
