    • The original red tape challenge concluded that SWMP Regulations should be scrapped

    • The date set for this is October 2013 (shown in a report from September 2012)

    • There was then a consultation to understand what the impacts will be if/when the regulations are removed

    • So...

    • Draft regulations indicate that:

    • No financial limit for requiring SWMP

    • Must be sent to relevant enforcement authority

    • Fees paid – value not yet determined

    • Councils MUST enforce the regulations

    • Subject to outcomes of consultation, SWMP regulations will be laid in 2014 and come into force in 2015
