These Regulations amend the Town and Country Planning (Determination of Appeals by Appointed Persons) (Prescribed Classes) (Scotland) Regulations 2010 in regulation 2 by extending those classes of appeal which are to be determined by persons appointed for the purpose by the Scottish Ministers instead of being determined by the Scottish Ministers to include appeals under section 5B of the Planni
Species-rich semi-natural grasslands have rapidly declined and become fragmented in Northern Europe due to ceased traditional agricultural practices and animal husbandry. Restoration actions have been introduced in many places to improve the habitat conditions and increase the area to prevent any further losses of their ecological values.
Biodiversity continues to decline in the face of increasing anthropogenic pressures such as habitat destruction, exploitation, pollution and introduction of alien species. Existing global databases of species’ threat status or population time series are dominated by charismatic species.
The Order sets regulations on the formation of the Land Inspection Board (LIB), which consists of 3 members appointed by the Minister of Environment after recommendation by the Ministry of Justice, Geo Data Board and the Danish Association of Chartered Surveyors. The LBI deals with appeals from practicing surveyors following failure of fulfilling their duties.
These Regulations amend the Valuation Tribunal Rules (Northern Ireland) 2007 as a consequence of the introduction of a right to appeal to the Tribunal from a decision of the Commissioner of Valuation for Northern Ireland on an appeal against a building completion notice where that decision concerns a building which is, or when next in use is likely to be, used wholly for the purposes of a priva
Changes of agricultural land use often induce changes in hydrological behavior of watersheds. Hence, effective information regarding runoff responses to future land use scenarios provides useful support for decision-making in land use planning and management. The objective of this study is to develop a methodology to assess land use change scenario impacts on runoff at the watershed scale.
Agricultural practices and land use significantly influence soil carbon storage. The processes that are affected by land use and management are generally understood, but uncertainties in projections are high.
The Regulations establish a scheme (the “Environmental Stewardship”) under which the Secretary of State may make grants for the management of land. Regulation 3 enables the Secretary of State to make a grant to any person who enters into, and complies with, the conditions of an environmental stewardship agreement with the Secretary of State.
This Order amends the Environmental Protection Act 1990 in so far as it relates to the Joint Nature Conservation Committee ("the JNCC"). It removes certain burdens upon the Countryside Council for Wales, English Nature and Scottish Natural Heritage and on the JNCC, by relieving these Councils of various support roles and enabling the JNCC to do things for itself.
These Rules give effect to section 175 of the Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Act 2002 which provides that permission to appeal to the Lands Tribunal from a leasehold valuation tribunal is required in all cases and that a party may not be ordered to pay costs in such appeals unless the Tribunal considers that he has "acted frivolously, vexatiously, abusively, disruptively or otherwise unreasona
