Title: Soar : consultation report, April 1997
Author: Environment Agency Midlands Region
Document Type: Monograph
This Consultation Report is about the Soar LEAP. It is divided in two parts. Part 1 is the Management Plan, and Part 2 is the Supporting Information. The part 1 of the Consultation Report is essentially the proposed management plan for the area. It introduces the reader to the Agency and the LEAP process, to explore the resources of the area, and to raise awareness of the environmental issues associated with it. Human activities exert pressures on all aspects of the environment and in turn this can impact on the welfare of households, individuals and wildlife. Planning the environment as a whole, through partnerships and integration, is the key to its success. This plan provides the opportunity for public involvement so we can all have a say in what happens to our local environment. Part 1 contains four sections. Section 1: Introduction; Section 2: "The local environment"; Section 3: "Issues and options"; and Section 4: "protection through partnership". The Part 2 of the Consultation Report provides information on the activities and uses which pressure the local environment. Pressures alter the state of the environment which drives a need for management through objectives and targets for environmental quality. These will protect the most sensitive aspect o f the resources, often human health and wildlife diversity. The current status of the catchment is compared-with-the targets and-where' there is a shortfall this has been raised as an issue in Section 3. This second part is divided in two sections: "uses, activities and pressures" and "state of the environment".
