Scottish Ministers have issued their decision on the INEOS Chemicals planning application for Bo'ness Road, Grangemouth.

They have decided to grant planning permission subject to conditions. The decision notice and the Reporters' report are published on the DPEA website.

It will be important now for INEOS to consider the detailed arrangements and scale of mitigation works that are to be undertaken and how these are to be put in place.

When we receive this information, we will consider it in our determination of a separate application for a Stopping Up Order.
