Victory at last as Government confirms Energy National Policy Statement Review

Back in October we told you that, following our judicial review with leading environmentalists George Monbiot and Dale Vince, Government had conceded the need to review the Energy National Policy Statement that allows new fossil fuel projects to be forced through the planning system.

We are pleased to report that Government has – at last – confirmed in its Energy White Paper that it does concede the need to review the Energy National Policy Statement.

This is an important victory for all of us deeply concerned about the mounting climate crisis, and a significant advance in the battle to ensure Government upholds its national and international obligations to hit net zero carbon emissions by 2050.
