Complaint system online 19 February 2021

Environment complaint system now online – Lyons

  
A new online system to register a complaint about public authorities failing to implement environmental law has gone live, Environment Minister Gordon Lyons MLA has announced.

A new body, the Interim Environmental Governance Secretariat (IEGS), has been established on a temporary basis now that the European Commission no longer has an environmental oversight role. Its key role in Northern Ireland will be the management of complaints. It will operate until later in the year when the proposed Office for Environmental Protection (OEP) is expected to be established.

“Our environment is valuable in its own right but it also sustains economic growth and facilitates social wellbeing, so its protection and enhancement are top priorities for me. As we await the introduction of the OEP, this new system means everyone can be reassured that environmental oversight will not simply be ignored,” said Minister Lyons.

“This new IEGS case management system allows members of the public to register any complaints they have about how public authorities here might be failing to properly implement our environmental laws,”he added.
