Title: Regional review and forward look : North West
Author: Environment Agency North West Region
Document Type: Monograph
This regional review illustrates what we have achieved in the North West Region in 1998/1999, what the Agency does routinely to improve the local environment and what our future priorities are. By publishing this document we aim to inform a wide audience, including local authorities, industry, secondary schools, libraries, MPs and Regional Development Agencies (RDAs), about our role in the environment as a regulator, operator and adviser so that they can interact with us more easily. The Environment Agency is one of the largest and most powerful environmental protection agencies in Europe. Our primary aim is to protect and improve the environment throughout England and Wales and to contribute to sustainable development through the integrated management of air, land and water. We were established by the 1995 Environment Act and became fully operational on 1 April 1996. Each of our regions will be making its contribution to addressing the major environmental issues that affect England and Wales. The North West Region covers a range of environments from rural areas such as the Lake District to heavily industrial urban areas such as Liverpool and Manchester. The region faces the challenges of the legacy left by textile, chemical and armaments industries. Resolving the problems of contaminated sites will play an important role in improving the environment.
