Every project proposed through the next Road Investment Strategy will go through the appropriate sections of the planning process, and this process usually includes multiple opportunities for consultation. As such, RIS proposals are subject to Environmental Impact Assessment regulations, rather than to those leading to a Strategic Environmental Assessment. The Department will ensure that every project is assessed in line with applicable law, and aims to provide additional opportunities for people with wider environmental interests and concerns to get involved when possible.
