Government extends Water Red Tape Challenge

The deadline for responses to the Water and Marine Theme of the Government’s Red Tape Challenge has now been extended to 12th April.

The Government says it will use the Red Tape Challenge to understand how water and marine regulations are working in practice – what works well, as well as what does not – and whether there are more effective means of achieving its policy goals. The Challenge is seeking views on a range of issues – including alternatives to regulation or innovative approaches to compliance with water and marine measures.

The Challenge has already received valuable comments on flood and coastal erosion, water quality, water resource and inland waterways but would welcome further comments, in particular on the practical ways of reducing burdens on business.
