Abstract

These Regulations amend the Nitrate Pollution Prevention Regulations 2008 in provisions which relate to the measures required in the nitrate vulnerable zones in England. They also give statutory effect to the revised designations of nitrate vulnerable zones in England made by the Secretary of State. The amendments concern, among other things: bringing non-livestock organic manure within the requirements on total nitrogen spread on a holding; new exemptions from certain aspects of the rules for greenhouse crops and low intensity grassland farming; revisions to the areas of land designated by the Secretary of State as nitrate vulnerable zones; quantity of nitrogen that may be applied to land; and allowing specified types of organic manure to be spread nearer to water where precision spreading equipment is used. These Regulations also make a minor amendment to the Water Resources (Control of Pollution) (Silage, Slurry and Agricultural Fuel Oil) (England) Regulations 2010.
