Review of gamebird releases on and around European protected sites - Defra Decision

Review of the way in which releases of common pheasant and red legged partridge on or near European protected sites in England are managed.

In September 2019 the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs took the decision to undertake a review of the way in which releases of common pheasant and red legged partridge on or near European protected sites in England are managed.

There were two parts to this review. The first part was a study of the impact of gamebird release on European protected sites. The second part of the review involved an assessment of what steps are appropriate to prevent any adverse impacts of gamebird release.

The review has now concluded and the Secretary of State’s proposed measures, along with the basis for these, are set out in this witness statement and exhibits, which were produced and submitted to the court as part of the judicial review challenge relating to gamebird release on and around protected sites.

We also publish here correspondence which further clarifies details around the proposed measures. Click through to read.
