English Nature is the United Kingdom Government Agency that promotes the conservation of wildlife, geology and wild places throughout England. It is a Non Departmental Public Body funded by the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (Defra) and gives statutory advice, grants and licenses.

 

The Nature Conservancy Council (NCC) (formerly the Nature Conservancy) was established to cover nature conservation issues across the whole of Great Britain in 1948 by an Act of Parliament, the National Parks and Access to the Countryside Act 1948. The NCC was split into four by the Environmental Protection Act 1990, its English duties being given to English Nature. In Scotland, its functions were merged with those of the Countryside Commission to form Scottish Natural Heritage, and similarly in Wales there was a merger to form the Countryside Council for Wales. An overarching, but much smaller body the Joint Nature Conservation Committee (JNCC) oversees all three agencies. The English functions of the Countryside Commission went to the newly-formed Countryside Agency.

English Nature is governed by a council and employs about 900 people.

 

It works closely with the Joint Nature Conservation Committee and the equivalent bodies for Scotland (Scottish Natural Heritage), Wales (Countryside Council for Wales) and Northern Ireland (Environment and Heritage Service) to bring a consistent approach to nature conservation throughout the UK and towards fulfilling its international obligations.

 

Following a review by Lord Haskins, enacted in the Natural Environment and Rural Communities 2006 in March 2006, English Nature will be integrated with parts of both the Rural Development Service and the Countryside Agency from 1 October 2006, to form a new body called Natural England.

 

English Nature manages a number of National nature reserves.

The well known designer of exotic vehicles such as the Borzoi, Bluebird Electric and Solar Navigator, knows when he's on to a good thing.  Nelson previously insured his vehicles with the Royal for about 10 years then General Accident for another 10 years.  Which just shows we tend to be loyal to our insurers - but are they loyal in return? 

 

 

 

Nelson Kruschandl - "Value and service."

 

 

These days there is a good choice of insurers each competing to save you money, so why not shop around.  When about 3 years ago Nelson's policy went up dramatically by about 30% he decided to check out the market.  He obtained quotations from most of the firms advertising savings such as Churchill and Direct Line, but was pleasantly surprised to find his local company could beat the best quote he'd obtained by quite a bit and offer a better policy.  Sold.  Nelson says:  "Why don't you give Hastings Direct a try online."  Move up to a better service and help keep this website active.  For every policy sold through us, Hastings Direct will contribute to our running costs - with no extra cost to you.  Please help us if you can. Applies in the UK only.
