Title: Lower Trent and Erewash : consultation draft February 1999
Author: Environment Agency Midlands Region
Document Type: Monograph
This report highlights the specific environmental problems in the Lower Trent and Erewash area, which are within the Environment Agencys remit or that can be addressed through partnerships. The Agency has identified the problems and made suggestions on how they can be tackled. This document, the Consultation Draft, is the first output from the LEAP process, and is not the final plan. To assist in the preparation of this report, an informal consultation exercise was undertaken with a range of organisations and groups in June/July 1998. Through consultation a shared vision will be developed, along with a strategy for action. This will guide Agency activities for the next five years and influence the activities of other groups. Public participation is important as it increases environmental awareness and encourages greater involvement and ownership of the local environment. The LEAP will set out the vision, a costed action programme for environmental improvement and supporting policies and partnerships. Regular monitoring and updating of the LEAP will be an integral part of the process. Annual review reports will be published leading to a full review and fresh consultation at the end of five years. The Lower Trent and Erewash LEAP is part of a national programme whereby every catchment in England and Wales will be expected to produce a LEAP and reach consultation stage by 31 December 1999.
