My Five Years As Environment Commissioner: Reflections from Janez Potocnik During His Last Week In Office

 

 

 

Guest blog for the RSPB by Janez Potocnik, European Commissioner for the Environment from 2009 to 2014

In my five years as European Commissioner for the Environment one of the key things I have learned is that Europe’s citizens care about their natural environment, passionately. That most certainly includes the UK. Indeed it has been striking that despite the apparent scepticism towards the EU there, UK citizens and NGOs regard the EU as a friend when it comes to environmental protection.

I have visited many nature reserves and met with many NGOs and volunteers in my time as Commissioner. Earlier this year while in the UK I had the good fortune to visit RSPB’s Northward Hill reserve and the North Kent Marshes, which overlooks the great expanse of the Thames. I saw Marsh harriers, Herons, little Egrets, and I met the Friends of North Kent Marshes. They, like so many people in the UK, are passionate about the wild places on their doorstep, and determined that they will be protected for future generations. For North Kent Marshes, and for many other international important wildlife sites across Europe, that protection is delivered by EU environmental law.

Broadband Mast In High Halstow

At the May Parish Council, MLL Telecom consulted the Parish Council to obtain their views on a potential monopole mast required to provide connectivity to schools across the peninsula, to meet curriculum delivery requirements. This scheme is being provided by Medway Council; MLL Telecom is providing the design and delivery for them. To reach the schools one solution might involve a mast on High Halstow Hill. A high point is needed as the network needs clear, direct ‘line of sight’ between locations… click here to read more June 2014

Hoo Nat West Branch Under Threat – Have Your Say

NatWest, the bank that likes to say Yes. Not however, it seems, if you’re a resident on the Hoo Peninsula!

We have been informed by Medway Councillor Chris Irvine that despite NatWest, and it’s parent company Royal Bank of Scotland, being bailed out by us, the taxpayers, to the tune of some £46 billion during the disastrous financial collapse in 2008, RBS is set to proceed with plans to close it’s NatWest branch on the Hoo Peninsula in Hoo St Werburgh. There has been no consultation. The decision has seemingly been delivered as a fait accompli. Please click here to read more May 2014
