Abstract

The amendments made by these Regulations designate further areas in Wales as nitrate vulnerable zones. The new regulation 3B and Schedule 1A, introduced into the Principal Regulations by these Regulations, designate as nitrate vulnerable zones those further areas, together with the areas already within designated zones in Wales. The new regulation 3C and Schedule 1B require the National Assembly for Wales to publish a notice in the press of the designation of new nitrate vulnerable zones. Regulation 3B places a duty on the National Assembly to review the areas designated as nitrate vulnerable zones in Wales, at least every four years. Regulation 3D enables any person who has an interest in land designated under the amended Regulations to require a mandatory re-assessment by the National Assembly of the inclusion of that land in the zone.
