This Local Environment Agency Plan Consultation Report gives you the opportunity to comment on environmental problems or the Agency's work. It describes the environmental resources of the area, explains how these resources are affected by human uses or pressures, and outlines issues where we or others need to take action to address problems in the environment. This LEAP Plan Area starts at Brean Down in the south and extends east to just beyond Blagdon Lake and then north to the mouth of the Avon. The greater part of the population of 178,000 (1991 census) is concentrated in the coastal towns of Weston-super-Mare (64,935), Clevedon (21,670) and Portishead (14;721). Inland, the larger settlements are Nailsea (17,230), Yatton (6,826) and Congresbury (3,435). The Plan Area combines the catchment of the Rivers Banwell, Oldbridge, Yeo, Kenn, Blind Yeo and Land Yeo, as well as the Uphill Great Rhine, the Drove Rhine and the Portbury Ditch.
