The Environment Bill sets out a new environmental governance framework as the UK leaves the European Union’s environmental policy and legislative structures. The Bill is substantial and when Royal Assent is granted, it will set in law significant new governance structures for managing and improving the environment together with more specific measures on waste and resources, air quality, water and nature and biodiversity. In part, the proposals seek to fill the governance gap as the UK leaves the EU, however; measures are also included to tackle significant environmental challenges including the plastics crisis, biodiversity loss and air pollution.
IEMA’s ‘The Environment Bill: Background, content and passage through the UK Parliament’ provides an overview of the key elements of the Bill from the environmental governance gap arising from Brexit, to awaiting Royal Assent by the end of 2020 (we hope) and what happens next.
