Author: Environment Agency Anglian Region
Document Type: Monograph
Annotation: EA additional title info: June 1997
This note provides additional information to assist planners in understanding the current status and future potential demands and pressures on water resources in Anglia. The Regional Water Resources Strategy, published by the National Rivers Authority in 1994 remains the main statement on water resources in Anglia. However, it is now nearly three years since the strategy was published and this note will identify where changes are developing both locally and within a national framework. The water resources strategy recognised that we live in the driest part of Britain. Future demands for water must be managed within this fundamental condition. The high quality of the environment in Anglian Region is one of its assets that must be protected as part of future sustainable development. The Agency has now commenced its wetland monitoring programme to gain greater understanding of the water needs of these sites in Anglian Region. Of the 51 sites, 45 are within the SCEALA region (Standing Conference of East Anglian Local Authorities), and 38 of these are in Norfolk.
