The Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs (DAERA) has extended the deadline for responses to its discussion paper on Northern Ireland’s first ever Environment Strategy.

The new closing date is now Wednesday 5 February 2020.

Announcing the extension Dave Foster, Director of Regulatory and Natural Resources Policy, said the department had received more than 800 responses so far.
