Government consultation on the natural environment.

This might be one of the most important or at least most timely posts since this Blog started.

Our new coalition government has announced that it invites comment on a White Paper for the Natural Environment.

Click here to go to the Defra site where you can find your way to giving your comments on line.
You can see the Discussion paper issued on 26th July before you make your comments.
Here are some extracts from the Defra site ( 23.08.10)

Comment on our discussion paper

On 26 July 2010 we published our discussion paper “An invitation to shape the Nature of England”. We invite all comments and submissions from anyone with an interest in the Natural Environment White Paper.

What are your views on the natural environment?

If you live in England, tell us which parts of the natural environment matter most to you and how we can best protect and enhance them.
Whether you live in a rural or an urban area, tell us your views by visiting our online survey and answering four short questions:
  1. Which parts of the natural environment matter most to you?
  2. How do you feel you benefit from the natural environment?
  3. How do you think we could improve the natural environment?
  4. What would encourage you to get involved in protecting the natural environment?
The deadline for responses is 30 October 2010.
