How we develop policy and guidance

We participate in policy development by responding to consultations, delivering advice sought by Ministers, working jointly with other parties with an interest in the topic, or by a combination of these. Where changes in approach are proposed, we normally aim to consult widely among those likely to be affected. For our plans and strategies we undertake Strategic Environmental Assessment to identify any other environmental effects, and we consult in public both on that assessment and on the draft plan.
