2020 Annual Conference

Environmental Challenges in 2021-what we can do

The 2020 Conference was held as virtual event online so you can read the presentations in the ‘Resources’ area of our website.

We are once again in a period of considerable flux. Although we have formally left the EU, we have yet to decide the form of our future relationship and what exactly will replace European environmental law. Furthermore, the impact of Covid-19 on our environment has yet to be fully understood and explored. The 2020 Conference offered opportunities to discuss these issues.

2019 Annual Conference

Delivering a better environment for the UK? Challenges for a new and effective environmental framework

The context for the 2019 conference was the degree of uncertainty surrounding Government plans for a new Environmental Bill while the future extent of alignment between the UK’s and Europe’s environmental policies remained and still remains unclear. Conference considered the challenges of ensuring adequate protection for the environment in the Government’s new Environmental Bill as well as the adequacy of the powers of the new watchdog, the Office for Environment Protection.

Despite uncertainty about environmental policy for the future, the challenge of delivering environmental protection for all in the UK continues to be the focus of work for Local Authorities and other bodies involved in delivering environmental protection. In addition to the keynote talks, special sessions on air quality, land quality and noise, gave updates on current issues in environmental protection. The programme was planned to ensure lively discussion in the conference sessions and many opportunities for networking and viewing the exhibition and displays.
