Environment Agency website moves

Environment Agency Press Release:


We have closed our website and transferred to www.gov.uk. Our new homepage is www.gov.uk/environment-agency.

Our most used content has already been moved across and more will be added over the next few weeks. The best way to find information that you are looking for on GOV.UK is to use the search function. Saved bookmarks to Environment Agency content should automatically redirect to GOV.UK or to an archived copy of our previous website on the National Archives.

Now that we have moved to GOV.UK we have closed our Business Environmental Update service; thank you for subscribing.

Sign up for GOV.UK updates

A customised update service is available from GOV.UK. You are able to select the publication type, such as, consultations, guidance, statistics; topic; frequency; and the government departments that you are interested in. You can change your selection and unsubscribe at any time.  

If you would like to try this service, go to the GOV.UK publications page.

1. On the left hand side of the page, pick the type of publications you are interested in (eg open consultations), topic (eg environment), etc.

2. Click ‘refresh results’ underneath the filter selection.

3. Click the ‘sign up for GOV.UK updates’ link provided. This will use the filters that you have set.

4. Click email or feed alongside ‘get updates to this list’ and follow the instructions.

Legislation updates

If you are interested in changes to legislation, this information will continue to be available from www.legislation.gov.uk. The ‘advanced search’ function allows users to search for and view new legislation by topic and part of the UK. You can also keep updated on the development of new legislation through GOV.UK email and feed alerts by selecting to receive relevant consultation and announcement updates.

These services are not operated by the Environment Agency; both websites include contact details for queries and feedback.
