A Single UK Environment Agency

Comment 1st July 2010

My idea is to combine the Environment Agency (EA) and the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) in addition to removing variations in application and interpretation of environmental regulations by the regional assemblies.

Why does this matter?

At present, a business operating across the whole of the UK has to adjust processes and procedures to reflect different requirements in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, when the fundamental UK and EU legislation or directive is trying to achieve a single, common aim. This leads to increased business costs as multiple business systems, processes and even paperwork is required for each country or region. As well as simplifying business processes, this could also lead to savings in the Government cost of running duplicate processes in the EA and SEPA.
