SocEnv Response to Defra Consultation on Post-Brexit Environmental Principles & Governance
Following the UK referendum result in favour of leaving the European Union, one of the key challenges before ‘exit day’ was addressing the so-called ‘governance gap’ left in environmental policy.
In 2018, Defra issued a consultation to gather views and input on the Post-Brexit Environmental Principles & Governance landscape. SocEnv issued a response to this consultation, stressing the importance of closing the governance gap and ensuring individuals with professional experience and proven competence are at the forefront of the post-Brexit environmental decision-making.
