Natural Resources Wales
About Natural Resources Wales
Natural Resources Wales is the largest Welsh Government Sponsored Body - employing 1,900 staff across Wales with a budget of £180 million. We were formed in April 2013, largely taking over the functions of the Countryside Council for Wales, Forestry Commission Wales and the Environment Agency in Wales, as well as certain Welsh Government functions.
We receive a Remit Letter at the start of each financial year setting out what the Welsh Government wants us to achieve during that year.
