Title: Back to life : bringing the environment back to the people of the North West
Author: Environment Agency North West Region
Document Type: Monograph
The Northwest region, possibly more than any other region in Britain, has had to struggle to overcome the legacy of its industrial past. For decades, economic growth in the area was pursued without a thought for the impact on the surrounding environment. The damage has long since been done but many problems still needed addressing today. In recent years, the Environment Agency has been leading the way by breathing new life into the regions neglected areas. By working closely with communities and dozens of different organisations we have been resuscitating our waterways, improving access to local beauty spots, strengthening flood defences and transforming previously disused land into havens for wildlife. This publication highlights just some o f the work that the Environment Agency has been involved in, or is currently working on, to transform and revitalise these areas of the North West. We will continue with this varied and wide reaching work as we strive to achieve a healthy, rich and diverse environment for present and future generations.
