|Subject: Have your say about plans to 'Cut Red Tape' within Water & Marine Tue Feb 21, 2012 1:08 pm|| |
Over 420 regulations are included within Water & Marine, including drinking water quality, flood management, inland waterways, marine conservation and fisheries. Water is essential for our daily life, which is why protecting the health of our rivers and seas, maintaining our aquatic life, and managing our water and marine resources effectively is such an important challenge. As part of this, we must ensure that our policies are being implemented in the most effective way possible, and that our regulations are not creating unnecessary barriers to innovation and efficiency.
The Water White Paper, published in December, set out plans for a more robust and prepared water industry, promoting innovation and growth in the economy whilst protecting the environment. At the same time we are working with our delivery partners to implement the Water Framework Directive and a range of measures to achieve clean, healthy, safe, productive and biologically diverse oceans and seas.
Over the next five weeks we want to hear your views on which regulations could be; improved or redesigned; kept or scrapped; or implemented more efficiently. We want to use the Red Tape Challenge to find out how we can do things better whilst maintaining the important progress that has been made in flood prevention, access to inland waterways, water quality and conservation of our rivers and seas which support a wide range of ecosystems.http://www.redtapechallenge.cabinetoffice.gov.uk/themehome/water-and-marine/
