On 21 June 2023 CIEEM Wales Policy Group wrote to Natural Resources Wales (NRW) regarding NRW’s Area Statements.

The comments and recommendations expressed are based on:

  • discussions with NRW’s Area Statements team;
  • liaison with Welsh Government (WG) Planners, leading to the joint CIEEM/WG publication of the Net Benefits for Biodiversity Briefing Paper in October 2022;
  • changes in legislation which affect the conditions in which Area Statements operate.
