From Defra

The Government has unveiled proposals to improve water quality and regulate activities that affect water supplies which are intended to:

  • modernise the system of licensing water abstraction – when water is taken from the environment for use in farming, food manufacturing and public water supplies – by giving businesses and other licence holders access to a more streamlined service; and
  • improve the management of activities that may impact groundwater quality through an updated risk-based approach to permitting

The two consultations will run for 12 weeks until 22 December 2021.
