January 2019 legislation updates for Northern Ireland.
The Drainage (Environmental Impact Assessment) (Amendment) (Northern Ireland) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 (SR 2019 No. 31) are made in exercise of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (c. 16) in order to address failures of retained EU law to operate effectively and other deficiencies arising from the withdrawal of the UK from the European Union. These Regulations make amendments to Northern Ireland legislation that implements, in relation to drainage projects, Directive 2011/92/EU on the assessment of the effects of certain public and private projects on the environment. The purpose of these Regulations is to preserve and protect the existing policy regime; it will not introduce any new policy.
