Natural Resources Wales (NRW) is reviewing its Enforcement and Sanctions Policy, which will make how it tackles environmental crime in all its forms easier to understand and more accessible to the public.

The updated policy clarifies how NRW engages with individuals and businesses to educate and encourage compliance through good working practices which put the environment first. Where an offence may have occurred, there are a range of formal enforcement powers and sanctions available to rectify any environmental damage, deter further illegal activity or punish any offences committed.

NRW is running a public consultation on the Enforcement and Sanctions Policy. This will allow the people of Wales to have their say on NRW’s approach to enforcing against environmental crime.

NRW’s Enforcement and Sanctions Policy public consultation opens on 16 August and runs until 27 September.
