New monitoring structures for environmental governance in the UK

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


The withdrawal of the United Kingdom (UK) from the European Union (EU) has proved to be a long, complex, uncertain, and still unfinished process. One definite consequence, however, has been a transformation in the structures for environmental governance across the UK, with the creation of new “environmental watchdogs” to monitor the implementation and effectiveness of environmental law. Further changes in relation to the legal recognition of environmental principles and the introduction of statutory plans and targets have also followed, but this article limits itself to the new monitoring arrangements.
