Stakeholder Consultation

UKTAG work priorities 2014-2017

UKTAG’s high level work priorities over the next year and beyond are designed to address concerns about some of the existing standards, gaps in our understanding of the relationships between pressures and ecological impact where we may be subject to challenge, and interlinkages between Natura protected areas and WFD.  The work priorities also aim to look at likely future issues, develop guidance on national measures and investigate an integrated catchment approach.
