Detail

Under the ‘Water Protection Zone (River Dee Catchment) (Procedural and Other Provisions) Regulations 1999’, you need consent (permission) to carry out a ‘controlled activity’ in the River Dee Water Protection Zone. A Water Protection Zone is an area where certain activities (storing or using controlled substances) are banned or restricted to reduce the risk of polluting drinking water.

The guidance notes includes a map showing which parts of the river Dee catchment are a ‘protected area’.

This is a joint Environment Agency and Natural Resources Wales (NRW) form. Applications are processed by Natural Resources Wales. For technical enquiries, contact the Dee Water Protection Zone Consenting Officer at NRW.
