Brexit - environmental consultation workshop and discussion group
Join us for discussions around themes such as the latest on the new environmental watchdog, the transition period and ongoing participation in certain EU institutions, devolution and the retention of environmental power by Westminster. We will be meeting on 19 April, from 2pm until 5pm at Weightmans LLP, No 1 Spinningfields, Quay Street, Manchester M3 3JE
This will be the first in a series of workshops that will provide a forum for environmental professionals to discuss the tidal wave of expected consultations relating to new legislation and other developments stemming from the Brexit process and the need to plug gaps in the UK environmental legislative framework.
