Consultation on proposals for new and amended standard rules for flood risk activities

Closes 8 p.m. 11th January 2019

The Environmental Permitting (England and Wales) Regulations 2016 allow the Environment Agency to offer standard rules for specific activities. This consultation proposes amendments to the existing standard rules and the creation of three new standard rules. The overall aim is to increase the uptake of flood risk activity standard rules permits, which make applying for and determining permit applications more straightforward.

The Environment Agency aims to publish the new standard rules sets in March 2019. For more information follow this link.
