Title: Regional water resources strategy : Severn-Trent region
Author: National Rivers Authority Severn-Trent Region
Document Type: Monograph
This Water Resources Strategy provides a policy framework for the development and on going management of water resources in the Severn-Trent region until 2021. It highlights the major issues and sets out the basis for decisions within the region. However, as factors influencing the planning process are continuously changing, the strategy will continue to evolve. By virtue of its location the region has a central role in the development of water resources nationally. The rivers Severn and Trent are already major resource providers to other regions and this could potentially increase. The strategy has therefore been developed in parallel with the NRA National Water Resources Strategy. The region's water resource objectives are set out in Section 3. The strategy itself describes the policies to be followed and current development proposals necessary to realise the objectives. Fundamental to the strategy is the need to protect and improve the environment. Having set the scene in the overview, the strategy then revolves around three key themes: Meeting Demands, Threats to Our Resources and Opportunities. The strategy concludes with a summary: The Way Forward.
