Local Environment Agency Plans (LEAPs) are integrated local management plans. They identify, assess and prioritise actions and projects, through partnerships, for resolving local environmental issues. These issues are related to the Environment Agency's work to protect and enhance the environment, and take into account the views of local communities, organisations and businesses. This LEAP (Draft Action Plan) provides the following information: An introduction to the Environment Agency; An introduction to the LEAP Process; An Overview which is a general description of the LEAP area. A separate document giving a detailed environmental overview of the Plan area is also available on request; It identifies the possible Issues for the Plan area and Actions to help resolve them; It promotes Protection through Partnership with other organisations. This Plan is the basis for consultation between the Environment Agency and all those organisations and individuals with an interest in the Mersey/Bollin area. This Local Environment Agency Plan (LEAP) is the last in the South Area LEAP programme. It brings together two of the sub-catchment areas previously covered by the Upper Mersey Catchment Management Plan (CMP) produced by the former National Rivers Authority in 1996. The process for this LEAP has been changed slightly in that the Agency is consulting with locals on this Draft Action Plan, as opposed to a full Consultation Report as was the case with the other LEAPs we have produced. This change was made because of the fairly recent consultation that took place on the CMP.
