4.11    Nitrate Vulnerable Zones (NVZs)

If you are in an NVZ, you must make sure that you are fully aware of the mandatory NVZ Action Programme rules. These rules apply to the way you manage your land to minimize the risk of diffuse nitrate pollution. If your land is within an NVZ, it is your responsibility to ensure that you can meet the rules of both schemes. Where the rules overlap you must meet those that are the most demanding. For further information on the Action Programme measures and detailed maps of NVZ locations, you can log on to the following website: www.defra.gov.uk/environment/water/quality/nitrate/
