Document Type: Monograph
This Action Plan outlines how the NRA and other organisations plan to tackle issues that affect the water environment in the Frome and Piddle catchment. The Frome an Piddle is a rural catchment of high amenity and ecological value. The upper part of the catchment lies within the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is characterised by steep-sided valleys. The rivers change in character as they flow through lowland towards Poole Harbour where they drain into the English Channel. These rivers make an important contribution to the rural economy through tourism, agriculture and recreation.
