Two further consultations were launched at the same time, mainly for local authorities and other technical organisations. These are on the draft scope and methodology for the Phase 2b Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) and the Equality Impact Assessment (EQIA). These consultations will close on 29 September 2017.
