JNCC 7th Quinquennial Review

Every five years, the country nature conservation bodies (Natural England, Natural Resources Wales and NatureScot), working jointly through the UK Joint Nature Conservation Committee (JNCC), review Schedules 5 and 8 of the Wildlife and Countryside Act (WCA) 1981. The review will provide recommendations to the Secretary of State for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs and to Ministers for the Environment in the Scottish Government and Welsh Government for changes to these schedules. This is known as the Quinquennial Review (QQR).

JNCC meeting note [QQR7] [to share] 22.07.21.pdf

From WCL - a note of the recent eNGO meeting with JNCC regarding the seventh quinquennial review. It was a constructive meeting, with JNCC making reassuring and collaborative overtures, but no definite conclusions to share yet. There will be a series of follow up meetings throughout the process with the next in mid-September, where we hope to get down to some of the technical nitty gritty.

As part of the QQR, stakeholders are provided with the opportunity to propose changes to the species on the schedules. This Information Pack has been produced for the 7th QQR (QQR 7). It is important to note that this QQR differs from previous ones. The Information Pack explains the new selection criteria, provides a timetable, and explains the process to be used by stakeholders. Contact details of the QQR Inter-agency Group who are managing QQR 7, are listed in Section 5. In addition, the Information Pack provides details of how to complete the online survey through which stakeholders propose new species for inclusion on, or removal of existing species from Schedules 5 and 8, or propose a change to how species are protected on the schedules. It is absolutely essential that clear evidence is provided for each proposal.
