Chartered Environmentalist and CIEEM President to Give Evidence to Lords NERC Act Committee

27 October 2017   (0 Comments)

On Tuesday 31 October, CIEEM President Stephanie Wray CEnv will be giving oral evidence to the Lords Select Committee on the NERC Act 2006.

Sections 40 to 42 of the Natural Environment and Rural Communities Act 2006 create a duty to conserve biodiversity. Section 40 places a duty on public authorities in England to conserve biodiversity. Section 41 requires the Secretary of State to publish and maintain lists of species and habitats of ‘principal importance’ for the purposes of conserving biodiversity in England. Section 42 required the Welsh government to publish equivalent lists but has since been superseded by the Environment (Wales) Act 2016.

The NERC Act 2006 Committee was appointed on 29 June 2017 to consider and report on the Act. It will report back to government by 31 March 2018.

CIEEM has already submitted written evidence to the Committee.

The evidence session will be streamed live on and will be available to view afterwards as well.
