The recent EA Consultation

Thank you to all of you who took the time to object to the Environment Agency’s proposal to increase charges for environmental permits.

The EA received a ‘significant number’ of responses and they have issued the following statement:

We recognise the significant benefits that these works can contribute towards natural flood risk management, habitat creation and enhancing the water environment, and we do not want our charges to discourage such good works taking place. We have not increased charges for works that, in our view, are for the benefit of the environment and are being carried out on a non-commercial basis.
