Title: Frome and Piddle, Poole Harbour and Purbeck : plan from November 2000 to October 2005
Author: Environment Agency South West Region
Document Type: Monograph
The Environment Agency has collated responses to the Consultation Draft and produced this Plan. Following comments received during the public consultation, which are summarised in Section 5, a number of changes have been made to the format of the LEAP to help clarify the issues and actions, and to help the reader concentrate on their area of interest. Appendix 6.2 guides the reader between the LEAP Consultation Draft published in November 1999 and this LEAP Plan. Each year the Agency will review the progress that has been made with the actions identified in the Plan and publish a review. The Annual Review will also identify any additional actions needed to maintain progress in the light of changes in the LEAP area and also whether any actions need removing or amending where they are no longer appropriate. The area covered by this plan comprises the entire catchments of the River Frome, River Piddle, the Corfe River and the Sherford River, Poole Harbour and a number of small river catchments flowing into the sea on the Isle of Purbeck. The plan area lies entirely within the county of Dorset. The County Planning Authority is responsible for strategic development, and minerals and waste planning. The District Councils responsible for local planning and environmental health are East Dorset, North Dorset, Purbeck and West Dorset. The Borough of Poole is a Unitary Authority and performs both County and District roles for its area.
