Thank you all that completed the GWCT General Licence consultation online. We had a great response in a short time over Christmas and we very much appreciate the time everyone took to complete it.
The reason we asked for this information is because NRW have made a call for evidence to inform the review of their approach to regulating the shooting and trapping of wild birds in Wales. It’s really important that we provide NRW with the necessary evidence to ensure that they can make an evidence based decision on future policy and legislation.
The GWCT consultation is now closed and we are busy crunching the findings which will form part of the GWCT response with all of your anonymised data to NRW. You can still send your comments direct to NRW (which closes on 27th January) but be aware that the information that you give can potentially be made public through a Freedom of Information request.
The GWCT submission will be published on our website and highlighted in our newsletter - sign up here if you don't already receive this.
