Title: Protecting and improving the water environment : model policies
Author: National Rivers Authority Anglian Region
Document Type: Monograph
The NRA, Anglian Region welcomes consultation with planning authorities during the development of Structure and Local Plans. At this strategic level, liaison is a two way process with the NRA having input into structure and other plans and seeking input by the planning authorities into NRAs plans. The NRA will make recommendations to the local planning authorities for the inclusion of policy statements in their plans to protect the public interest and NRA assets in the longer term. At local plan level, development of particular sites begins to be identified. This stage is possibly the most vital part of the planning process. The NRA will offer critical advice as to which areas suggested for development are subject to constraints such as flood plains, flooding problems, aquifers and sensitive catchments. The technical constraints will be clearly spelt out for each individual development whenever possible. The policies are grouped under the following headings: 1 Flood protection; 2 Conservation and enhancement of the water environment, including recreation, navigation and fisheries; 3 Water quality and water resources.
