The Minister for Housing, Local Government and Heritage, Darragh O’Brien, T.D., invites submissions, observations and comments on the fourth review of Ireland’s Nitrates Action Programme.
The objective of this public consultation process is to invite stakeholders to feed into the initial consultative process in relation to the review. A second consultation phase will be undertaken in 2021.
Why are we launching a Public Consultation?
Ireland’s Nitrates Action Programme is given effect by European Communities (Good Agricultural Practice for Protection of Waters) Regulations 2017 (S.I. No. 605 of 2017), as amended. The regulations contain specific measures to protect surface waters and groundwater from nutrient pollution arising from agricultural sources. In accordance with the Nitrates Directive these regulations are due to be reviewed this year.
