Following the merger of the old South West and Wessex Regions of the National Rivers Authority (NRA) to form the new South Western Region, there has been a drive to unify the structures of the four operational Areas in the Region. This process has taken place so that perceived best practice can be operated throughout the Region and so that service delivery can take place to a uniform high standard across the Areas. In the Cornwall and Devon Areas, however, a multifunctional field workforce exists which is used by all Functions. The Authority is currently under pressure to rationalize this anomaly in the Area structures. This report examines the multi functional field workforce concept in some detail, with particular reference to the use of these staff in the Devon Area Fisheries Function.
