Detail of outcome
We received 14 responses to this consultation from individuals, local authorities and businesses.
We will be introducing these changes to the Environmental Permitting (England and Wales) Regulations 2016. The majority of the changes will be taken forward by end of December 2018. We expect the amendments on the fencing exclusion and update to the salmonid map to be taken forward in 2019.
We want to know what you think about our plans to amend the exemptions and exclusions for flood risk activities in the environmental permitting regulations.
Environmental permitting makes sure that any work completed does not increase flood risk, damage flood defences, or harm the environment, fisheries, or wildlife.
The majority of these adjustments will allow more flexibility for individuals and businesses.
