EA consultations

Latest EA consultation:

A consultation on Working Together to deliver river basin management

The Environment Agency has for a long time had a consultations system, some consultations relate to environmental permitting, many to other areas of the agency’s remit.

These consultations always run for a month or more, at the end of the period the Environment Agencywrites a report summarising the responses and how the EA proposes to respond to the consultation.

The consultations summary page is at this link, a list of open and most recent closed consultations ((i.e. usually a link to tyne associated report should be available)) can be found here (6 are currently open at the time of writing – 2012-06-22)

I’m highlighting this on the website rather than trustees email, since I feel the process should have wider publicity.

You can register a consultee account at register, most consultations require you to login to take part in the process.

Today a fairly important consultation for Rivers Trusts and others interested in riverine issues started, its a 6 month consultation.
