The GWCT has produced this survey to capture the detail of General Licences in Wales. As with the previous consultation, we will collate and anonymise the information before putting it into a report. The closing date for our survey is 10th January.
Why is this user survey so important?
Wild Justice are pursuing a Judicial Review of General Licences in Wales. In a perfect world, NRW would sit on a mountain of scientific literature. It would have robust scientific evidence of the impact of every species on every other species, in every situation, before issuing any licences.
As with most things in life, we don't live in a perfect world. Some activists are exploiting this by suggesting that licences must be withdrawn or changed as a result. However, under UK administrative law, government agencies are required to understand the impact of any proposed changes on users. This is why you must share your experience and views.
NRW have encouraged the GWCT to engage with members and supporters on this issue and welcome our proactive approach of collating and submitting general licence user information.
