Environmental protection

Closing Date: 22/10/2021

Consultation Status: Closed

The consultation for the National Operational Guidance: Environmental protection has now commenced. The consultation will close at midday on 22 October 2021.

What happens after the consultation has closed?

All the consultation responses will be considered by the content team with appropriate amendments made, prior to the draft guidance being presented to the Operational Guidance Forum in December 2021. If you have any questions about the consultation, please email FireCPO@nationalfirechiefs.org.uk

How to participate in the consultation

We recommend reading the draft guidance before completing the consultation questions. The Environmental protection guidance has been updated due to:

  • The periodic review approach for National Operational Guidance
  • The need to update outdated hyperlinks to the Environmental protection handbook, with new hyperlinks to the revised Foundation for environmental protection

Two versions the Environmental protection guidance are available:

  • A line numbered version without tracked changes – to be used when completing the survey
  • A tracked changes version

The change control at the start of the PDF file provides details of and rationale for changes. Please be aware that the hyperlinks to places within this guidance, or to other sections of guidance may not currently function; this will be addressed at point of publication.

Please provide sufficient detail in your comments for us to determine what content they relate to, along with the line number of the PDF document – the line numbers are displayed in the line numbered version without tracked changes.

Please read through the Environmental protection consultation questions before starting the consultation.

We are using an upgraded survey platform that will allow you to ‘Save and continue’ completion of your responses. If you use this option, you will be sent an email with a link to enable you to rejoin the survey.

We hope you will find this function useful.
