An “environmental commission-like-body” is needed to replace the role of the European Commission and the European Court of Justice in enforcing environmental law post-Brexit, says Environment Secretary Michael Gove. I have recently sent a few hundred tonnes of excavated chalk to landfill because the circumstances did not fit the current interpretation of the regulations. We really do not need any more regulators. Maybe Brexit is a real opportunity to re-structure the regulation we have got to raise productivity within a framework of environmental care. We could use CL:AIRE. Look it up. Credit to DEFRA.
