Title: South Essex catchment management plan : action plan June 1996
Author: Environment Agency
Document Type: Monograph
The Consultation Draft for the South Essex Catchment Management Plan was prepared by the National Rivers Authority (NRA) in November 1995. The Environment Agency is to continue to use the former NRA's integrated environmental management mechanism for forward planning. Catchment Management Plans instigated by the National Rivers Authority will continue to be called Catchment Management Plans, although new Plans initiated by the Agency will be known as Local Environment Agency Plans. This Action Plan and future Annual Reviews will take account of the wider responsibilities of the Environment Agency and will incorporate issues relating to waste regulation and Integrated Pollution Control. The Action Plan was prepared after full consultation with those bodies listed in Appendix III who have an interest in the water environment and in industry. This Action Plan sets out the characteristics of the South Essex catchment which includes the Crouch, Roach, and Mardyke river systems. The Plan refers to the management of Integrated Pollution Control prescribed processes, and also to the regulation of radioactive and domestic wastes. It gives a broadly based vision of what the Agency seeks to achieve, and is followed by an overview and a detailed Activity Plan.
