Author: Environment Agency South East Region
Document Type: Monograph
This Strategic Environmental Framework (SEF) provides an operating framework for the Environment Agency staff responsible for delivery of the London Tidal Flood Defences Programme (LTFDP). It also provides a clear statement of the Agency's objectives and implementation plans to external organisations such as the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (MAFF), statutory consultees including English Nature, English Heritage and the Countryside Commission and non-statutory consultees including the London Ecology Unit and London Wildlife Trust. The SEF will ensure that the environment is taken into account early in the planning of the LTFDP. It will also ensure that appropriate alternatives are examined and that the impacts, both positive and negative, of preferred options are assessed in terms of their effects across the whole Tidal Thames and over the whole design life. This will have to take into account' environmental change, such as sea. level rise.
