The long awaited Environment Act 2021 finally received its royal assent on 9th November. The government press release is here.
The document is not yet published, and its provisions will need to be commenced. The detail will be in Regulations, which are not yet available.
I had written extensively when the document was first promulgated, and I will write further blog posts on the subject once the Act is published and we see the provisions that are commenced now.
