Consultation: Environmental Principles and Governance after EU Exit

Closes 2nd August 2018.

The Government has launched a consultation on the development of an Environmental Principles and Governance¬†Bill. The new legislation is intended to create a new statutory body for England to act as an independent environmental watchdog and hold the Government to account on environmental obligations in the post-Brexit era when there is no longer EU oversight. The new body will work alongside a new policy statement¬† that sets out the environmental principles to guide successful and sustainable policy-making and will support the ambitions of the Government’s 25-year Environment Plan.
