The Agency is to continue to use the former NRA's integrated environmental management mechanism for forward planning. Catchment Management Plans (CMPs) instigated by the National Rivers Authority will continue to be called Catchment Management Plans, although new Plans initiated by the Agency will be known as Local Environment Agency Plans. This Action Plan sets out the Agency's strategy for dealing with the issues identified in the NRA's Consultation Document for the River Ancholme Catchment which was publicly launched in January 1996. The Plan was prepared after full consultation with the public and other organisations with an interest in the water environment including local industry and the farming community. It is intended that this water based plan will be revised over the coming years to reflect the wider responsibilities of the Agency by incorporating environmental issues relevant to air and land in addition to those of water. This document aims to summary the River Ancholme Catchment Management Plan "Action Plan". This Action Plan outlines areas of work and investment proposed by the Agency and other responsible parties over the next 5 years, and will form the basis for improvements to the environment in the Catchment. Progress against the Action Plan will be monitored and reported annually. The River Ancholme Catchment Management Plan Consultation Report was published in January 1996. A meeting in Brigg to launch the Plan was attended by representatives from industry, local authorities, environmental groups, sport and recreational groups, and other local groups with an interest in the catchment. This meeting launched the plan for a 3 month period of public consultation.
