Posted in | by

Dr Dominic Hogg, Chairman of Eunomia will be appearing before the Commons Environmental Audit Committee on 4th March.

Dominic will be attending in his capacity as Executive Chair of the West of England Nature Partnership, and giving evidence alongside Liz Newton of Natural England and Rupert Clubb of the Association of Directors of Environment, Economy, Planning & Transport.

The Committee is examining progress on the Local Nature Partnerships and Nature Improvement Area initiatives. It is therefore interested in the relationships between LNPs and Local Enterprise Partnerships and Health & Wellbeing Boards on the ground and the support given to LNPs by the Government. The session will also look at how local bodies deal with the Birds and Habitats directives, and the European Commission’s current ‘fitness check’ of these directives.
