The Environment Agency continue to manage the operational impacts of Coronavirus and look to the opportunities ahead in 2021

Lee Rawlinson, Director of Regulated Industry, Environment Agency: As we move into 2021 we will continue to keep you up to date on what we are doing to adapt our regulation and support you during the ongoing Covid-19 situation. Whilst we are still in this difficult and ever changing situation, we want to help you to continue to operate and comply with all relevant environmental legislation. 

Our Coronavirus regulatory position remains in place, which you can access here: Environment Agency regulatory response to coronavirus – GOV.UK (www.gov.uk). We also continue to have our Covid-19 Regulatory Position Statements, and they are being regularly reviewed. All the details can be found here: COVID-19 regulatory position statements – GOV.UK (www.gov.uk). If you are using one of these positions, please ensure you keep checking for updates.
