NOTICE OF DETERMINATION A82 LAYBY TO STONEYMOLLEN ROUNDABOUT ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT DETERMINATION UNDER SECTION S5A OF THE ROADS (SCOTLAND) ACT 1984
The Scottish Ministers give notice that they have determined that the project for resurfacing works on the A82 from the layby to the Stoneymollen roundabout north bound is a relevant project within the meaning of section 55A of the Roads (Scotland) Act 1984 ("the 1984 Act") and falls within Annex II of Directive 2011/92/EU on the assessment of certain public and private projects on the environment, but that having regard to:-
(a) the selection criteria contained in Annex III of that Directive, namely

(i) the use of natural resources, in particular land, soil, water and biodiversity;

(ii) the production of waste;

(iii) pollution and nuisances;

(iv) the risks to human health (for example due to water contamination or air pollution);

(b) the results of the Environmental Screening Assessment under section 55A(2) of the 1984 Act,

(c) the information set out in the Record of Determination dated 28 July 2021, available at

https://www.transport.gov.scot/

transport-network/roads/road-orders-and-records-of-determination/#63527, the project does not require an Environmental Impact Assessment.

The main reasons for the conclusion that no Environmental Impact Assessment is required are:
(a) The works comprise like-for-like replacement of the road surfacing material;

(b) The scheme will be confined within the existing carriageway boundaries and as a result will not require any land take and will not alter any local land uses;

(c) The scheme is not situated in whole or in part in a "sensitive areas" as listed under regulation 2 (1) of the Environmental Impact Assessment (Scotland) Regulations 1999 (as amended); and

(d) No significant residual impacts are predicted. Disruption due to construction activities are not expected to be significant and will be mitigated as far as is reasonably practicable.

The features of the project which are envisaged to avoid or prevent significant adverse effects on the environment are:
(a) Pollution controls will be in place to contain debris and wastes produced during works;

(b) Resurfacing works will be restricted to made ground within the A82 carriageway boundary; and

(c) Mitigation measures detailed in the Site Environmental Management Plan will ensure no significant negative impacts on sensitive environmental receptors
