This weeks edition of Environment Weekly highlights includes a publication from Natural England on badger control licences for areas that will undertake control operations within the high risk and edge areas of England in autumn 2019, the launch of a consultation from the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (Defra) seeking views on what general licences to kill or take wild birds should cover, and evidence on related issues along with Defra’s announcement that it will review the way in which the release of gamebirds on or near protected sites in England is managed. Also this week, the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committee has called for the government to take action to reduce all single use packaging—not just plastic, the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has urged companies to act and prepare for a no-deal Brexit and the European Environment Agency has published a report setting out the EU’s progress towards ending the use of chemicals harming the ozone layer in line with its commitments in the Montreal Protocol. In addition the Environmental Audit Committee (EAC) has called on the government to take ‘rapid action’ to address climate change and the risk it poses to national food security and the Environment Agency (EA) has announced it will carry out a review of permitted waste sites within the bio-waste sector, including composting, anaerobic digestion and mechanical biological treatment.
