Author: Environment Agency South West Region
Document Type: Monograph
This is the Second Annual Review of the Dorset Stour LEAP which was originally published in 1997 and reports on progress from January 1999 to December 1999. The LEAP is based on the surface river catchment of the Dorset Stour. The main River Stour flows from Stourhead to Christchurch Harbour and is joined by numerous tributaries along the way, passing through or near Sturminster Newton, Blandford Forum, Sturminster Marshall, Wimborne, Ferndown, and Bournemouth. The catchment lies across three counties; Dorset, Somerset and Wiltshire. It is one of four LEAPs that cover the South Wessex Area of the Environment Agency. The document consists of four main sections along with three sections of supporting information: Section 1: "Introduction", introduces the Agency and the LEAPs process. Section 2: "A better environment through partnership", this section details how we work in partnership with other organisations to help achieve LEAP actions and other local environmental improvements. Section 3: "Progress Overview", gives an overview of the 87 actions which were originally identified in the Dorset Stour LEAP along with the 55 new actions identified over the last two years. The status of these 142 actions is as follows: New actions (37); Started/on-going actions (48); Completed (29); Delayed/no action (13); Actions that are now routine (15); Section 4: "Progress report" - activity tables, this section is divided into 20 sub-sections. Each sub-section describes an environmental issue and summarises progress with each associated action from January 1999 to December 1999. The activity tables also list the partner organisations, the cost of the action (where available) and the timescale.
