Title: Taw/Torridge Estuary catchment management plan : consultation report : August 1993
Author: National Rivers Authority South West Region
Document Type: Monograph
This plan, for consultation in the south west, is one of three plans covering the Taw/Torridge Catchment. The Consultation Report includes the following sections: Uses; objectives; state of the catchment; issues and options. The Taw/Torridge Estuary Catchment Management Plan Consultation Report covers the estuary below the tidal limit and a short length of the adjoining coastline. The River Taw Catchment Management Plan Consultation Report, to be published later this year, will cover the River Taw above the tidal limit and the freshwater inputs to the Taw Estuary. Dividing up the catchment in this way has enabled this CMP to be published alongside the Local Authorities Taw Torridge Estuary Management Plan, which has been prepared for Torridge District Council (TDC), North Devon District Council (NDDC), Devon County Council (DCC), English Nature and South West Water Services Limited (SWWSL). Together, these two plans provide complementary strategies for the future management of this important estuary system.
