Pre-appointment hearing for the Chair-Designate of the Office for Environmental Protection (OEP) Contents


Following the conclusion of the hearing, we are satisfied that the recruitment campaign and Dame Glenys Stacey’s selection as the Government’s Chair-designate of the Office for Environmental Protection were in accordance with the Governance Code on Public Appointments, and that Dame Glenys Stacey is a suitable candidate for this position.

We welcomed her candid recognition that she does not yet have a deep environmental understanding; we would expect her to focus on and grow that understanding and ensure that the Office for Environmental Protection’s staff, and in particular the chief executive, have that deep knowledge and experience of environmental issues, policy and law.
