Title: Welland : consultation report : June 1997
Author: Environment Agency Anglian Region
Document Type: Monograph
The publication of this consultation report marks the start of a three month period of formal consultation. This enabled external organisations and the general public to work with the Environment Agency in planning the future of the environment in the Welland Plan area. The Plan area for the Welland LEAP extends from the headwaters of the River Welland near Market Harborough in Leicestershire to the Wash Estuary along the Lincolnshire coastline. It includes the sub-catchment of the River Glen which rises in the Lincolnshire Limestone ridge east of Grantham. Major towns include Oakham, Stamford, Spalding, Market Harborough and the northern fringe of Peterborough. The natural catchment area of this Plan includes part of the Wash Estuary for which we are also producing a LEAP. Whilst reference to the Wash will be made in this document, any issues pertaining exclusively to the seaward side of the flood defence line will be reserved for that Plan.
