Natural England roll out DLL nationally
Natural England has today announced that it is rolling out District Level Licensing (DLL) for Great Crested Newts nationally. The protected species licensing system is aimed at more strategically protecting newts and also giving more certainty to developers. Natural England has also updated the guidance, application and inquiry forms on the gov.uk website.
CIEEM’s position on DLL was last updated in February 2018. We are currently revising this position.
