Consultation description

We are seeking views from all concerned parties about the impact of the recent withdrawal of the three general licences (GL04, GL05 and GL06) on 25 April 2019. In particular we want a clear understanding of the implications for the protection of wild birds, and the impacts on crops, livestock, wildlife, disease, human health and safety and wider nature conservation efforts.

The evidence gathered from this, along with the information that Defra and Natural England have already received since 25 April, will inform our future approach in order to get back to a satisfactory situation.

The closing date for providing views and evidence is 5pm on Monday 13 May 2019.
