SEPA has been trialling catchment licences for engineering works, mainly sediment removal and bank protection works, for the last couple of years. It has issued a number of catchment licences and now want feedback from those that have been involved. If you are part of the Dean Water, Angus, Water of Ae or the Speyside Isla groups, we want to hear about your experience.
The licences that have been issued range from Dumfries to Speyside so getting licence holders together for a meeting seems unlikely. SEPA has therefore asked ourselves and NFUS to gather feedback from our members and to meet with them to discuss the pros and cons at the end of the summer.
The feedback they are after includes:-
• what went well,
• what hasn’t worked well,
• where do you think improvements could be made,
• is it clear what SEPA is expecting from an application, and
• were there any difficulties with the application process.
