Environmental Improvement Plan 2023
The UK government have recently published the first revision of the 2023 Environmental Improvement Plan, which includes targets relating to nutrient neutrality.
Nutrient pollution from agriculture is to be reduced by 10% by 2028, and water companies have a target to reduce phosphate loadings from treated wastewater by 50%, by 2028.
In the short term, site specific measures to reduce nutrient loadings will still be needed until these measures are in place.
Cole Easdon can advise on nutrient assessments, and help to develop site-specific solutions.
