Abstract

These Regulations designate additional nitrate vulnerable zones and make other provision for the purpose of implementing in England Council Directive 91/676/EEC concerning the protection of waters against pollution caused by nitrates from agricultural sources. Regulation 3 designates the additional nitrate vulnerable zones. Regulation 4 provides a procedure for reviewing designations. Regulation 5 provides for appeals to be made from proposed decisions on a review. Regulation 6 makes provision for withdrawing an appeal. Regulation 7 deals with the costs of the parties to an appeal. Regulation 8 provides for the Secretary of State to be bound by any decision made on a review. Amendments to the Protection of Water Against Agricultural Nitrate Pollution (England and Wales) Regulations 1996 concern periodic review of designations, monitoring and implementation, periodic review and monitoring of action programmes. The Farm Waste Grant (Nitrate Vulnerable Zones) (England) (No. 2) Scheme 2000 is amended so that grants are available in relation to farms in the additional nitrate vulnerable zones. Regulation 11 applies the Action Programme for Nitrate Vulnerable Zones (England and Wales) Regulations 1998 to the additional nitrate vulnerable zones. The action programme in those Regulations defines the measures which must be taken on farms and livestock units to limit the application of nitrates to land.
