ADAS advises growers to renew water abstraction licences

The latest Hardy Ornamental Notes published by ADAS advises growers to renew their water abstraction licences.

The ADAS advice comes following a message from the Environment Agency warning growers to submit their renewal applications within three months of the licence expiry date as all late applications will be treated as ones for ‘new water’.

The agency has only received 175 applications for the 340 limited licences up for renewal in March 2011, and warns it will not be as lenient as in previous years.

In over-abstracted areas, growers late in returning forms face the possibility of being turned down renewal or given a lower water quota.
