This report is based on an independent online survey of people engaged with strategic environmental assessment (SEA) in Scotland, October 2018. The survey was designed to contribute to research into effective SEA in the Scottish context (as documented in McLauchlan and João 2019). This report begins with information about who took part in the survey, then provides a summary of responses to the questions. There were 35 full responses, from local authorities, statutory consultation authorities, other public bodies, NGOs and the Scottish Government. All participants had been involved with SEA for a period of more than 3 years; 21 people had 10 years’ experience or greater. Many of the questions were open ended and this yielded much information about people’s experience of SEA
