The Review looked at how the Directives are implemented in England and relevant UK waters. It was found that implementation generally works well, but identified room for improvement in four areas. 28 measures were announced to improve implementation across these areas. The Review set out a detailed timetable for delivery and 25 of the 28 measures have been implemented.
