Changes to general and class licence updates are being implemented after Natural England's public consultation earlier in 2014.
From 1 January 2015, you must make sure that you are operating under the conditions of these updated licences.
As a response to consultation feedback Natural England has made the licences easier to understand by:
- developing a consistent format
- rewriting the explanatory notes
This new format means that general and class licences will look different - but there are no major changes to the licence conditions - with the exception of those listed above.
General licences GL09, GL19 and class licence CL22 have not been re-issued this year.
A summary of Natural England Board decisions is available following the consultation.
