GN11-07 New Payments for Optic Fibre Cables Installed on Overhead Electricity Apparatus

Energis (now trading as Cable and Wireless) has a longstanding agreement with CLA and NFU on recommended rates for fibre optic cable on electricity pylons. The last agreed rate expired on 1 Dec 2004. In the event, following tough negotiations, in April 2007 CLA and the farming organisations agreed to recommend a package deal to our members based on a five year period which is backdated to come into effect on 1 December 2004 and lasts until 30 November 2010.

The Power for National Park Authorities to make Traffic Regulation Orders

The consultation concerns a new power for National Park Authorities (NAOs) to make Traffic Regulation Orders (TROs).  The Government had given assurances to the CLA during that private access should not be affected and that the aim of the power was to restrict damaging recreational access.  Given these assurances we have argued in the current consultation that two aims are important:

Outcome Measures and prioritisation approaches for Flood & Coastal Erosion Risk Management

This is CLA's response to the Defra consultation on how flood and coastal erosion risk management will be assessed and prioritised in the future.  Whilst, we largely support the new measures proposed, which include separating flooding and coastal erosion budgets, we have made suggestions to improve the system to make it more equitable for rural areas and ensure that risk to economic activity is given greater weighting.

Making Space for Water: Environment Agency Strategic Overview

CLA are supportive of the EA having direct responsibility for strategic coastal management as this will allow a more holistic approach.  It is important the implementation of a strategic coastal management plan has the required funds to ensure that those who lose out for wider economic/community/environmental benefit are adequately recompensed.  It is recommended that in time coastal management will extend to not just cover erosion and flood risk but the wider issues spatial planning, habitat management, community and social well being, heritage protection.
