Less ‘Red Tape’ from EA?

Is it possible? Can the Environment Agency really do the job with less Red Tape, or will it be an exercise in smoke and mirrors?

The Government’s Red Tape Challenge claimed that it is burdensome for some small businesses to fill in Waste Transfer Notes. In consequence, the Government is proposing greater flexibility around Waste Transfer Notes as well as making two minor amendments to legislation relating to waste carrier registration and enforcement 


This should be a step in the right direction, but it would be hugely out of character despite plans to streamline services and slash budgets with the lass of 1,400 jobs.

How long before inspectors are charged with the task of direct income generation through a model of FFI similar to that recently implemented by HSE?

Any bets?
