Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)
These Regulations revoke, with a saving, certain provisions of specified designation orders made under section 18 of the Agriculture Act 1986 designating areas in England as environmentally sensitive areas. The orders implement in part a zonal programme approved by the European Commission under Article 7 of Council Regulation (EEC) No. 2078/92 (OJ No. L215, 30.7.92, p. 85) on agricultural production methods compatible with the requirements of protection of the environment and the maintenance of the countryside (“the Agri-environment Regulation”), as last amended by Commission Regulation (EC) No. 2772/95 (OJ No. L288, 1.12.95, p. 35).
These Regulations revoke only those provisions of the specified designation orders inserted by S.I. 1996/3104 which made provision to implement Commission Regulation (EC) No. 746/96 (OJ No. L102, 25.4.96, p. 19) laying down detailed rules for the application of the Agri-environment Regulation, as now amended by Commission Regulation (EC) No. 435/97 (OJ No. L67, 7.3.97, p. 2). The remaining provisions are revoked, with a saving, in each case by a replacement designation Order made under section 18 of the Agriculture Act 1986.
No Compliance Cost Assessment has been prepared in relation to these Regulations.
