This report is about the environment of the River Dove catchment. This area covers 1,002 sq km (387 sq miles) within North East Staffordshire and West Derbyshire and has a population of approximately 110,000 people. The report will highlight specific environmental problems that the Environment Agency and key organisations have identified and suggestions on how they can be tackled. The Consultation Draft introduces the work and responsibilities of the Environment Agency and the LEAP process. It gives a brief description of the resources of the area and highlights the environmental issues that we consider need to be tackled. It also looks at partnerships, areas of joint working and the work of others which, in the long term, will raise the quality of the local environment. The Consultation Draft is divided into four sections: Section 1 - Introduction This section is an introduction to the Environment Agency and to the LEAP process. Section 2 - The LEAP Area This section provides a general description of the plan area and the resources of air, land, water, wildlife and heritage. Section 3 - Issues and Options Here we identify the issues and problems that we consider should be addressed locally in the short to medium term and put forward a number of options for their resolution. Section 4 - Protection through Partnership This section looks at sustainable development, partnerships, land use planning and education which can be used to address longer term issues and problems and raise the quality of the local environment.
