Author: Environment Agency North East Region
Document Type: Monograph
The Hull an East Riding LEAP covers an area of some 2170 km2, stretching from Flamborough Head to Spurn Point along the coast and including the Market Weighton Canal and River Foulness to the west. The major centres of population are Hull, Driffield, Beverley and Market Weighton with seasonal tourist centres at Bridlington, Hornsea and Withemsea and Skipsea. The pressures of industry and large urban populations are lower in this area than in other catchments in the Ridings Area. There is however a large concentration of industry around the city of Hull and along the banks of the Humber Estuary. The purpose of the part 1 of the LEAP is to introduce the role of the Environment Agency, examine the area covered by the plan in terms of natural and physical features and highlight some of the partnerships which the Agency is involved in to protect our environment. The principal section of Part 1 identifies a number of issues and proposals for action which will form the form the basis for consultation.
