The Secretary of State has today announced the start of the Environment Agency's Triennial Review.
The review, which will be conducted jointly with Natural England and apply to England only, is part of a rolling three year programme designed to assess the form and function of Non Departmental Public Bodies like the Environment Agency on a continual basis.
Paul Leinster, Chief Executive, said 'Triennial Reviews are part of the scrutiny process of Arms Length Bodies by Government Departments. The Environment Agency plays a vital role in helping to protect and improve the environment, supporting sustainable growth and reducing the flood risk of communities. We have been working with Defra along with Natural England on their preparations for the review and we will continue to work closely with them as it progresses.'
