Detail

The Environment Theme has been open for comment on the Cabinet Office website since April 2011, with a ‘spotlight’ period in September 2011. 

Of 255 regulations, 132 will be improved, mainly through simplification or consolidation; 70 will be kept as they are, to uphold important environmental protections; and 53 obsolete regulations will be removed.  There will also be a new drive to introduce smarter implementation on the ground.
