Title: Environment Agency guidelines for identifying environmental improvements qualifying for AMP3 investment
Author: Environment Agency
Document Type: Monograph
These criteria have been developed by the Environment Agency (the Agency) in consultation with the Department of Environment, Transport and the Regions (DETR) and English Nature. The present draft represents an early stage in the development of criteria which will allow the Water Industry to determine provisional cost estimates for the Periodic Review, for the period 2000 to 2005. The purpose of this document is to establish clear criteria for the inclusion of schemes, to be carried out by the Water Industry, that are needed to improve or protect the environment for present and future generations. The document has been structured to allow the development a matrix of costs and priorities covering all the key headings under which investment may be required or justified. The aim is to add discipline to the process of assessing costs and setting priorities, to reduce the potential for the double counting of costs, and to allow a series of investment scenarios to be developed once the costs at scheme level have been established. The schemes for the individual Water Companies should be identified in conjunction with the Agencys Regions and according to the criteria in this document. It focuses on schemes required during the period from 31 March 2000 to 31 March 2005 and will provide a platform for future environmental planning priorities.
