New & Upcoming Legislation.
Although we discussed in the previous article the virtual impossibility to cover legislation in one go, what we can do and will do monthly is to detail the new and upcoming changes to Environmental Legislation.
The following areas of legislation are under consultation at present – drop Wayne a line firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more:

Consultation on new marine licensing system in England
The Marine and Coastal Access Act 2009 sets out a framework for a new marine licensing system for regulating marine activities to provide protection of the environment, human health & users of the sea.
