The Environment Agency is looking for new committee members

If you’ve ever wanted to take a part in formulating Environment Agency (EA) navigation policy, this could be your chance.

The EA is looking for two people from the south to join its Regional Fisheries, Ecology and Recreation Committee (RFERAC).

The Committee, which meets four times a year, advises on improving and developing navigation policies, and also has a hand in fisheries, conservation, ecology and recreation issues.

“The committee performs a vital role by objectively looking at the EA’s work and advising on policy, implementation and priorities,” the Agency said. “Individuals of all backgrounds are encouraged to become members to ensure the committee accurately reflects the environment they serve.”

If you’re interested in signing up, you must live in the EA’s Southern Region, which covers Kent, East and West Sussex, Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.

All applications must be received by 21 February.
