Title: Bedford Ouse (lower reaches) environment overview : June 1999
Author: Environment Agency Anglian Region
Document Type: Monograph
This Environment Overview has been prepared to provide supporting information to the Bedford Ouse (Lower Reaches) Draft Local Environment Agency Plan (LEAP). It is a factual description of the local environment and the associated environmental stresses and strains. It is intended to be used in conjunction with the Draft LEAP or in isolation as a reference on the state of the local environment. From this overview a series of issues have emerged which have been carried forward into the Draft LEAP for consideration by the Agency, its partner organisations and those individuals and organisations generally interested in the local environment. The Agency’s Corporate Plan details set targets for environmental improvements which we will continue to refine so that we can fully demonstrate the effect that society is having on the environment. These targets indicate priorities and the extent to which we plan to deliver the actions set out in the document ‘An Environmental Strategy for the Millennium and Beyond’ (1998). All LEAPs will identify local actions for environmental improvements that support and contribute to national targets set out in the Corporate Plan.
