A green Brexit? Removing red tape or increasing environmental protection?

October 13, 2020

RSK Biocensus’s Stephanie Wray will be joining Landmark Chambers and Walker Morris on 21 October for a webinar discussion examining the forthcoming changes in legislation and policy as the UK prepares to leave the EU on 31 December 2020. The free event, ‘A green Brexit? Removing Red tape or increasing environmental protection?’, will see Stephanie provide a practitioner’s view as to how these changes are likely to affect the environment, how the development industry can positively respond, and the practice of planning and environmental impact assessment.

Date: Wednesday, 21 October 2020

Time: 11:00–12:30

Joining Stephanie at the event, other speakers will include James Maurici QC, who will look at the potential for Brexit to allow the rolling back of EU environmental law, particularly in the light of recent government announcements, the extent to which the Environment Bill might prevent this and what this might mean for the development industry and decision makers; and Alison Ogley of Walker Morris, who will explore the opportunities for developers and decision makers arising from mandatory biodiversity net gain for developments in England. The webinar will conclude with a question and answer session.
