The first part focuses on the purpose of the body, cross-cutting duties and specific duties covering:

  • natural beauty and nature conservation;
  • public access and recreation;
  • forestry; and
  • other overarching duties.

Part 2

The second part of this consultation considers where more information has been asked for and where we want to share our intentions. This part covers:

  • cross-border issues;
  • regulation and enforcement including the Environmental Permitting Regime (EPR) and inspection, investigation, enforcement and prosecution, including civil sanctions and investigatory powers;
  • cross-border monitoring;
  • statutory planning and reporting;
  • Emergency response including the transfer of powers under the Control of Major Accidents and Hazards Regulations (COMAH);
