On 25th January 2021 the Environment Agency provided a short summary to the Challenges and Choices Consultation responses. ADBA’s response to the Challenges and Choices Consultation, which was submitted on 24th September 2020 can be found here.
The Challenges and Choices consultation is the second of 3 statutory consultations. During the consultation Government asked for our views on the challenge’s waters face and the choices we all need to make to improve and protect this precious resource.
The Challenges ADBA responded to were:
- Challenge 2: Chemicals in the water environment
- Challenge 5: Plastics pollution
- Challenge 7: Pollution from agriculture and rural areas
- Challenge 9: Pollution from the water industry
As Government analyse responses, they are identifying actions that we can comment on during the draft River Basin Management Plans (RBMP) consultation. Following this, the response will be finalised and submitted to the Secretary of State for approval.
