This document focuses on the consultation report of the South South Yorkshire and North East Derbyshire LEAP. The South Yorkshire and North East Derbyshire LEAP covers the catchment areas of the rivers Don, Rother and Deame. It is an area of some 1849 km2 stretching from Chesterfield to Goole and to the moorlands of the Peak District National Park above Sheffield and Stocksbridge encompassing a range of contrasting rural and urban settings. The population numbers some 1.4 million people with major centres at Doncaster, Barnsley, Rotherham, Sheffield and Chesterfield. The area has a legacy of pollution and contaminated land from its industrial and coal mining past. This report is divided in two parts. Part I The purpose of this section of the LEAP is to introduce the role of the Environment Agency to examine the area covered by the Plan in terms of natural and physical features, and to highlight some of the partnerships in which the Agency is involved to protect our environment. The principal section of Part I identifies a number of issues and proposals for action which will form the basis for consultation. Moreover part I contains four sections: introduction, the local Environment, protection Through Partnership and Issues and Proposals. Part II is divided into two sections plus Appendices, and provides background information to support Part I. Section 5 identifies the uses, activities and pressures on the environment in the South Yorkshire and North East Derbyshire area. Section 6 examines the current situation, measuring the environmental quality of the area against measured targets.
