Abstract:
Anglian is the largest NRA Region covering an area of approximately 27,000 square kilometres from south Humberside to Thameside and from Great Yarmouth in the east to Northampton in the west. The region is responsible for maintaining 5,800 kms of main river and over 1,300 kms of tidal and sea defences. In addition it controls more than 960 kms of navigable rivers, nearly 4,700 kms of coarse fishing water, and monitors the quality of 33 designated bathing waters. Although the Region is predominantly rural, it is predicted to attract the highest population growth in the next ten years. One fifth of the Region lies protected below sea level, whilst the rainfall levels are the lowest in the country. Many aspects of the NRA's work interact and conflicts of interest can arise. The most effective way of balancing all interests is through the preparation and implementation of Catchment Management Plans. CMP's are prime NRA documents which incorporate all other relevant planning initiatives or plans within the geographical boundaries of individual catchments.
