Opened 18 Jun 2013



In 2012 the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) proposed  the repeal of the construction Site Waste Management Plans (SWMP) regulations, subject to consultation on the impact of doing so.  This was in response to the Government's Red Tape Challenge, which was designed to remove unnecessary legislation to free-up business.
