Legal action over chicken units in the Wye catchment

In 2022, acting for Salmon & Trout Conservation, Guy submitted an Environmental Damages Regulations notification to the Environment Agency concerning the impact of phosphate from intensive poultry units on the Upper River Wye catchment.

The matter remains in dispute between S&TC and the Environment Agency, but significant publicity surrounding the effects of poultry on the Wye seems likely to result eventually in much stricter controls being applied both sides of the English-Welsh border.
