Details

The Major Infrastructure and Environment Unit (MIEU) was set up by Defra in April 2012 following the Habitats and Wild Birds Directives Implementation Review (March 2012). It is designed to improve implementation of the Directives of major infrastructure projects while helping avoid unnecessary costs and delays to developers.

To ensure the MIEU is working effectively, Defra has reviewed the MIEU testing:

  • The impact of the MIEU (e.g. in helping avoid unnecessary costs and delay).
  • Whether the MIEU’s remit should be changed and / or expanded.
  • Whether the MIEU should remain in Defra or its remit could be delivered elsewhere.
