Author: National Rivers Authority Thames Region
Document Type: Monograph
An important part of the CMP process is to monitor the Action Plan to ensure that the targets and actions are achieved and that the plan still addresses all significant issues in the catchment in an appropriate manner. This report summarises the progress made towards realising the River Kennet catchment vision since the publication of the Action Plan in April 1994. It is recommended that this report is read in conjunction with the Action Plan. This plan constitutes the first comprehensive, integrated Catchment Management Plan for National Rivers Authority (NRA) Thames Region. Its main purpose is to indentify the entire status and values of the water environment in the River Kennet catchment and the issues and problems related to the water environment, and to draw up Action Plans which will safeguard and enhance the existing values and will tackle issues and problems within the wider concepts of sustainability and environmental capacity. A comprehensive process of public consultation has brought together Local Authorities, statutory bodies, environmental organisations, interest groups and the NRA with a common commitment to conserve and enhance the River Kennet catchment. We wish to continue to consult and communicate as much as possible on a face-to-face basis in order to convert this commitment into the implementation of actions outlined in this Plan. The NRA will also use the Plan to make appropriate inputs to its West Area Sector Plans and the Regions Corporate Plan.
