Title: Guidance notes for local planning authorities on the methods of protecting the water environment through development plans
Author: National Rivers Authority
Document Type: Monograph
As guidance for local authorities on these matters, the NRA has prepared this set of statements relating to the broad headings of water quality and water resources, flood defence, fisheries, conservation, recreation and navigation in the river corridor, and mineral workings and waste disposal. While most headings reflect NRA functions, minerals and waste disposal have been included as a discrete section reflecting the practice of preparing separate minerals plans and waste plans. Under each heading, issues are described with suggested statements and reasoned justification.
