Title: Douglas : consultation report : November 1998
Author: Environment Agency North West Region Central Area
Document Type: Monograph
The process of drawing up LEAPs involves close consultation with all interested parties. It promotes the effective, accountable and integrated delivery of environmental improvement at the local level. The plans will translate policy and strategy into delivery on the ground and will result in actions, either for the Agency to fulfil, or for others to undertake through influence and partnership. We believe the process benefits the local community by influencing and advising external decision-makers and public opinion. Prepared over the last 8 months, this report identifies issues within the Douglas plan area which the Agency wishes to see resolved. Some of the causes are known and these issues have detailed actions, others are highlighted to key groups for potential partnerships, information or discussion. At the start of a plan, contact with key interested groups is made to inform them of the process and ask for their early thoughts. Later drafts have formed the basis of further discussions to develop solutions to issues. The final draft document is open for three months consultation, the issues are circulated and considered for comment as widely as possible. These plans are available to everyone.
