My department is carefully considering our retained EU law, including the Conservation of Habitats and Species Regulations 2017 (the Habitats Regulations). Defra’s aim is to ensure that environmental law is fit for purpose, able to drive improved environmental outcomes whilst providing a UK regulatory framework that is appropriate and tailored to the UK.
