									NVZ advice and support 2009-2010
Events, workshops, clinics and visits

Environment Agency staff will be available to provide you with information, advice and
support on Nitrate Vulnerable Zones (NVZs) and related regulations (for example, on
planning, storage and designations) at shows and events around England and Wales.

We will also be leading a coordinated and comprehensive series of workshops, clinics, and
one-to-one sessions across England to help farmers, growers and land managers comply
with the new NVZ rules. These will be in partnership with different organisations and
specialists, and tailored to reflect the needs of farmers in each region. Workshops are also
being held in Wales this summer. Details of these will be available shortly.

Information on these events will appear here when available.
