Water Regulation & Farms - The Key Issues for Agricultural Advisors
Effective and sustainable use of watercourses and our water supplies is one of the priorities in terms of Government policy going forward.
Previously water pollution was governed by the Water Resources Act and the case law decided under that Act is still relevant with regard to the new law which is now found in the Environmental Permitting Regulations.
This webinar will consider the regulations and a consideration of recent cases.
What You Will Learn
This webinar will cover the following:
- Policy on water catchment management, what schemes are available in England and Wales and a discussion as to how these policies may develop going forward
- A review of the regulations, and how these have been interpreted in the case law
- A consideration of recent cases and penalties which have been applied
- Consideration of the defences available and when it may be possible to use ‘novus actus interveniens’
This pre-recorded webinar will be streamed at 12:30pm on Tuesday 10th December 2019 and will remain available to view by delegates who have registered by then for 90 days.
