Title: Aire LEAP draft environmental overview : September 1998
Author: Environment Agency
Document Type: Monograph
This document provides an overview of the environment of the Aire catchment. It brings together and examines information on the various pressures on the local environment and its consequent state. The Environmental Overview supports the Draft Aire Local Environment Agency Plan (LEAP) which was launched for public consultation on 18 June 1998. The LEAP identifies issues that arise as a result of the pressures and proposes actions to help resolve these. The pressures on the environment are mainly a consequence of human activities. They include the needs for improved standards of living, wealth creation and improved quality of life as expressed by improved health, happiness and a clean and varied environment. The success of the Agency in this area will be judged primarily on how we have been able to reduce or alleviate the pressures themselves to achieve environmental improvements.
